I break my heart crying at this programme every time I watch it, but it certainly brings it home how lucky I am, and how cruel life can be.

That little boy is a sweetheart. As is his little sister.

I love what these guys do for people.

A great watch - again. A programme that's hugely under-rated by the critics.

Sure is. If only more people could get the benefit of what they can do.

Itís a heart touching programme, thatís for sure.
Out of curiosity, who pays for all the work to be done? I know local trades companies supposedly give up their time to help the permanent crew, but what about all the materials? Even with all the volunteers, the makeovers they do in the programme are going to cost a lot of money. Does it all get paid for by the BBC as part of the programme budget, or is it Lottery funded or anything like that?

Donít get me wrong, if all the work is paid for by the BBC I have no complaints (its actually nice to see the money be put somewhere worthwhile instead of another hour of drama), Iím just curious.

However well deserved, it's not my idea of using the licence fee wisely to pay for a state-of-the-art bath hoist or wheelchair. .

I imagine [ I hope ] sponsorship, charities and freebies from companies cover most of the cost.

Of course its a personal opinion, but Iím more than happy for it to be covered by the BBC. When you think of how much it costs to produce an hour of television, practically drama, I quite like it that they can spend the same amount to change a families life forever and still get an hour of airtime out of it.
