Default Talking of program content..

There has recently been a series running on one freeview channel made in
Eire and seems to be about animals in distress. Nearly every episode has
what one might call a non story. Scraping the barrel comes to mind. The one
I witnessed recently was indeed a cat stuck up a tree for some days, however
when they finally got ready to get it down, it found its own way down, so
all that build up and goodness knows what was pointless.

There have been many other stories like this on that series as I normally
catch the end of it while channel hopping.

The worst one I have seen recently was one of the US "baggage auction"
programs that came to the UK to make an episode. They went to a UK lost
luggage auction, bid hundreds on "unopened" suitcases and surprise,
surprise they made lots of money on them. In one suitcase they found
hundreds in twenty pound notes.

The same auction house had been featured on a UK program a month or two
earlier. The staff go through all cases to remove valuables to auction
separately. What's left is the case itself and the general contents
which are fit for the lower end of the boot fair market.
