I always enjoy reading Tony Bingham's column but this time he really struck a chord ("On the home front", 17 January, pages 48-49).
I, too, find myself angered by the sheer incompetence and potential dishonesty exhibited by television makeover programmes.

I don't suppose anyone in television will take notice of what Bingham says, but in due course it may be that somebody making a programme on "how to be a builder/developer" will be prosecuted by some injured party and hauled before the courts to suffer their well-deserved comeuppance.
