Background music
Not necessary....please remove .Occasionally drowns out speech!

Voiceover
This new feature is awful and completely unnecessary. PLEASE drop it.

As an Australian I'm always amused but the British perception of a single story house as not quite being a real house.
Aussie Watcher 3:25am Thu 12 May
 
   
Spoilt buyers
This programme incenses me. The buyers almost always have a large budget and unrealistic expectations. And no idea of how most people live. Today, they were shown a perfectly now kitchen (the size of a studio flat in Loon) and the woman sniffed and said "that's tiny". What planet are they on?

where has Escape gone?
I watched this programme every day in France - now it seems to have disappeared from BBC1. It was informative as well as entertaining. Can we have some explanation about why it has been axed?

Shoes!!
I wouldnt want people tramping round viewing my house in their outdoor shoes and boots, especially when its raining outside. How disrespectable.

Never happy with the homes
They are adults and worried about what their friends of family think. I doubt some have the money. They see big kitchens but never big enough.
Doubt the Show 6:55am Sat 21 Nov
 
   
Repeat, repeat, repeat
Can we have some up to date shows please!

Great show
I've always loved this show, entertaining and yet relaxing. I suffer with depression and anxiety and this programme let's me forget all that and somehow lifts my mood. Love it

Enough money
If they have that amount to spend why not spend some on the wife....at best get her teeth sorted
once more 3:33pm Fri 16 Oct
 
   
in my opinion
These shows are obscene. Two people want acres of land, umpteen bedrooms, eight en-suite bathroom and shower rooms. Meanwhile on the property ladder.....or not as the case may be.
once more 3:33pm Mon 28 Sep
 
   
For heaven's sake
Why can't people say the word thing correctly. It's bad enough contestants saying everythink and nothink and somethink but now Alistair Appleton is at it. I thought he went to Cambridge. It's thing not think.

Never A Sale
Why do most episodes never have people looking for homes, but never buy them? It's annoying to watch the show all the way to the end, and they either don't end up buying any of them, or the show never "follows up" to see if they brought one of the houses.

Opening scenes
Where are the beautiful opening scenes filmed?

Year of program.
Love ur show but what's the use when we get the 2011 show viewing on our channels in 2014.

Another repeat
Yet another compilation dressed up as a new programme

how
how did they get so much money?
brat 3:40pm Fri 18 Apr
 
   
Guess the price
Why do they have to go outside to discuss price?

Soundtrack
Re last comment for list of tracks - Many tracks were used in most episodes & I have managed to compile a list of most of them. I don't know which tracks were used in the specific episode you have quoted though.
Wolrad 1:39am Fri 28 Feb
 
   
Soundtrack
Season 10 Episode 32 Yorkshire - does anyone know where I can find the music lists for this episode, it was stunning.
Terrya 3:34pm Thu 27 Feb
 
   
What drivel; waste of taxpayers' money!
What's the incentive for those insufferable attention seekers to appear on this show? A show of self serving and smug bores looking for airplay not for properties; very disappointing.

Tadalafil?
Sure you've got the right programme? What's your point?

violin music
Paul Mottram bold prediction

Long awaited return.
Thank goodness there are new programmes! But why are the interspersed with repeats? Still the best house hunting programme on tv! Love it, love it, love it.
Toosie 4:12pm Wed 5 Feb
 
   
Violin music
The violin music is called 'Morning Dew' by Paul Mottram
Bakedapple 8:06am Tue 21 Jan
 
   
Background music
Much of the violin music currently used is by Paul Mottram. You can find it at audio Network.
Wolrad 1:01am Sun 12 Jan
 
   
Background music
We love the violin music used in several of the programmes what is it please
Barty 6:57am Sat 11 Jan
 
   
Music
I agree with Gwenny about the music - the new music is depressing & has spoiled the programme. The original music was brilliant. I now know that various music used up to series 13 was written by Paul cuddeford, Alistair Lindsay & Matt Coldrick. Currently in process of trying to identify titles & hopefully purchase - not an easy task I'm afraid.
Wolrad 1:15am Sun 17 Nov

real world
lets have people who live in the real world rather those with a budget of 750000 plus

observation
Please explain to your presenter that "guys"are of the male gender and women are of the "female "gender.I am suprised that women on the show do not pull the presenter for thinking they are men.

booya

NeverKnowMyName 10:41am Mon 14 Oct
 
   
Repeats
Why do we have repeats ,repeats , repeats , why has it been moved to 4 pm !!!!! Are you trying to get rid of it by saying viewing figures have dropped , shame on you when you have loyal followers of the programme .
Doodles 4:27pm Mon 7 Oct
 
   
Brilliant shiw
I love this programme and all the presenters. Would be quite lost without it! Dreaming is good for the soul!
Toosie 6:00pm Fri 13 Sep
 
   
Music and Themes
the original music was better than the recent. It made the show so warm and uplifting to watch. The themes such as bread makings and looking at donkey farms is not what I switch on for. More houses to view would be preferable. I have always loved the show and Catherine Gee was a favourite presenter.
Gwenny 4:23pm Mon 12 Aug
 
   
Tight
I wish someone would get Aled Jones a new jacket/coat !

Anyone know the fill in background music played in most episodes...

welsh people
Does anyone remember the welsh family who were really chavvy and wanted to change all the rooms and wanted a bar and a pool. Catherine gee was gobsmaked

Presenter's constant laughter
Apart from showing inappropriate properties, usually over the top of the available budget, the presenter never stops laughing and it sounds so false

Why does Aled Jones always have his hands in his pockets

Song
Is there a song used in this show that is a downbeat version of "sympathy for a devil" by the stones?
