The Repair Show

Season 1

What do you do when teddy’s fur’s all fuzzed up, your chest of drawers is rotten or a clock’s stopped ticking?

Presenter Eva Brenner and her team fix whatever can be fixed. First of all, antique expert Ulrich Vogt examines the treasured possessions that have passed their prime, and estimates their value. Are they actually worth repairing? What will the precious piece be worth after repair? The owners visit the experts in their workshop, a price is negotiated, then the experts set to work, mending, polishing, painting. How do they fill in the cracks, remove varnish and give dolls the full makeover? The repairers return the finished objects to the astonished owners, sometimes making them a tempting offer. Can they resist? Was the repair job actually a success?
