Last year we were approached by a couple of production companies about appearing in TV programmes, and we said yes where they were factual. The first was one about homes in Britain and Northern Ireland, so we spent half a day with a camera crew and played host to Gloria Hunniford, who although not really a fan of this way of life, was charming and very good at helping us along.
They got some nice bits of film and it captures the place at a good time of year. Of course we inevitably got compared with ‘The Good Life’, despite saying we’d no wish to be totally self sufficient, but hey ho, and I’ve always wondered whether I was conditioned by the programme at an early age, so you never know. Anyhow, you can watch it on iplayer for a bit if you have a license, or our little bit on youtube which a friend grabbed for us.
