Well they decided on 20 programs so were obviously confident of enough things taking place though I have to say they really ham things up at times for the smallest of incidents. I just remind myself that this is a general entertainment program aimed at appealing to the casual viewers so donít take it too seriously.

Original edited to correct spelling mistake, sorry finger troubles in original.

I would think that in today's GWR land they would have enough material to fill and episode EVERY DAY.

There must be times when GWR and Network Rail wish there wasnít a camera crew waiting for something to kick off.

Hmmm... I wonder... Could the current problems on GWR be the result of a Channel 5 sabotage team trying to spice up their footage?

Disclaimer - I haven't actually watched this programme yet. Is it any good?

From the couple of episodes I have watched, like all such TV programmes, it revels in turning a minor issue into a major crisis (not that NR/GWR need much help in doing that anyway)..... Roll Eyes Cheesy
