Now this TV show I seriously enjoyed making!!
The TV crew came up to our house on two separate occasions, once before Christmas 2017 & once in early January 2018 for two full days of shooting. We felt like lords!!!!
The topic of our show?
Food waste & how much it’s costing us. Make some simple changes and see how much we could save. Sounds fairly simple right? Trust me, it takes planning!
It was bananas – we really felt like some form of celebrities!! Watching 4 or 5 cars roll up outside the gaff including The Presenter (Philip Boucher-Hayes), a Director, a Producer, an Assistant Producer, Cameraman & Sound Engineer x2 with all the equipment and all in our house!!!
Our episode (6th of 6) aired on Ireland’s National Broadcaster – RTE1 – on Thursday just gone (19th April 2018). The fact that this show is into it’s 3rd Season shows it has an audience. It also get’s decent media coverage like this & this. Now, I can’t lie and say I’ve seen them all – I haven’t – but I have seen a fair few of them and it’s genuinely a very informative show.
Having pushed the word out that The Stented Family were gonna be back on TV again, it’s suddenly dawned on us that we had absolutely zero idea how we would be edited. In fact, we had zero idea how long we’d even be included in the show!!
We were in this show quite a bit. The editing was great. Our house looks great (not always like that but let’s be honest, if you know your place is gonna be on national telly, you’re gonna clean like you’ve never done before!). We look great – so we’ve been told!!! Happy Days!
The show is available online until Sat 19th May 2018. RTE don’t allow you to embed their player into 3rd party blogs/sites but don’t panic – I’ve the links below for you to watch:
- For those in Ireland (North & South) chick here to watch on the RTE Player.
- For those outside of Ireland click here to watch on the RTE International Player (you will need to download their app first).
So that’s my 4th TV appearance in the last 8 months – not bad for a #SAHD who punches the keys every now and again 🙂 !!!
