Members appearing on national TV next week!
« on: January 04, 2013, 03:50:56 PM »
An update from LisaE and myself ... long-established members may remember us from days we were much more active hereabouts!

Happily still living in Melksham.  Love it here.  Old friends may remember coming to IRL meetups at our house.   Well - we've now got our own hotel / business accommodation - lovely part of the country - and we're appearing on national TV next week - the "Four in a Bed" series on Channel 4 - [here].  Do watch the show ... or indeed do pop in and say "hi" if you're in the area.

P.S.  Our hotel web site is [here]

That looks like a nice place! I'll have to keep an eye out for the programme! Good luck.  Hope you get a great publicity hit from it!

I've seen that programme and may I just say that you're very brave to appear on it! I'll definitely tune in.  :)

I had an extra "http" in one link - thanks for letting me know; now fixed.   And the link to Lisa's profile will only work for logged in members.

Thanks for all the feedbacks;   we have an excellent team, so we did not need to be brave - it was actually a rather obvious decision to go for!  ;D

I have no doubt that you have an excellent team! I was really referring to the way these programmes are edited. You don't have much control over how you're portrayed, no matter how good your team is. A friend of mine was on 'Country House Rescue' a couple of years ago and now feels very bitter about the whole experience. I hope yours is a success!  :)

Thanks ... it's certainly true that much can happen in the edit and the commentary track.    Let's see what this week's shows bring ... won't all be a bed of roses, but won't all be a bed of thorns either!

Thanks ... I think we're happy with how that went.  More tomorrow evening, and the most interesting on Wednesday when we host.  There will probably be fireworks on Friday at the "reveal" too  ;)
