BBC’s Cowboy Showdown
The BBC has commissioned a new daytime series aiming to expose rogue traders across the country. ‘Cowboy Trap’, presented by property expert Clive Holland, has promised to name and shame dodgy workmen who do lousy jobs and steal all the teabags in the process. The new show is likely to strike fear into BBC presenter Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen who has been getting away with overpriced botch jobs for years. The 20 x 45 minute shows also plan to give expert advice on avoiding scams and expensive quotes. Expert tradesman will then be on hand to help out those effected repair the mess.
The programme is intended to appeal to an audience in recession who are choosing to do up their own house’s rather than look for other properties. When asked what time the show would air the BBC couldn’t name a specific date. Next week was too busy, then Christmas was coming, not to mention the workload early in the new year so the best bet would be to stay in your house between 9 and 5 during the month of August 2009.
