Is Your TV Killing You?

SBS is looking for people willing to participate in a new "reality" TV progam, Is Your House Killing You?.

Put YOUR home under the microscope in our groundbreaking new science show ‘Is Your House Killing You?’ We're looking for ALL TYPES of houses and occupants to take part in this exciting new series on SBS. You are invited to take up the challenge to ‘detox’ your home. [...] Are you a cleaning freak or the opposite? Are you renovating or redecorating your house? Do you live in a rambling old quirky house? Are you expecting a baby and in a nesting frenzy? Does your bathroom have things growing in it? Have you recently bought new furniture? Do you suspect any kind of pest problem and/or have you been using pesticides? Do you spend a lot of time in the garage tinkering with cars? Do you have a mould or dampness problem? Are you a market gardener? Do you suffer from asthma or allergies? Do you have eczema or dermatitis or have a persistent cough? Do you live on a busy road? Then read on! Your house, garden or garage might be toxic! However great the challenge, our super brainy team will come up with a makeover plan to rid each home of their toxic time bombs. [...] If you, or someone you know would like to have their house detoxed, contact us immediately.

From the video promo, it appears one of the "super brainy" (and modest) supersleuths includes Dr Dingle, who certainly could not be accused of independence, given his own promotion of the subject. The vision of Dr Dingle in the promo reminds EoR of the health inspector from Fawlty Towers, ferretting around in the fridge.

Notice how the blurb slips so easily from "science" to "detox"?

  1. Sounds like a cool idea. I am an asthamatic and I do see some spiders hovering around my house.
