Hello Dollies...

Nikki's already shared this on her blog, but I thought I'd post it here as well.

Tomorrow night at 7.35pm on Channel 4, UK time, they are airing a programme called Hello Dollies, it is all about Miniatures and Dolls Houses.
The write up says:-
Kat McShane delves into the world of Adult Dolls House enthusiasts, exploring the attraction of creating Miniature worlds, through the stories of some very British eccentrics...
Don't you just love the way they call us eccentrics!

They are supposed to be showing some footage of the Kensington Fair that took place in December. I wonder if we will see any one we know?. I know a few of the Artisans over on CDHM were at the show....

I've already set the Sky to record it.
If you can't get Channel 4 where you are you can watch it on line here:-

I'm off to my bed now, before I turn into a Pumpkin.. Night Night..

Oh, I hope the TV show is good tomorrow. Unfortunately Channel 4 (and ITV and BBC) don't allow people outside the UK to watch shows on their websites. They know what country you are in by your IP address. It is possible to change you IP address to a UK one (do a Google search for 'IP Proxy'), but this can be difficult and very slow. So unless I have time in the next few days to mess about on the computer, I'll just have to wait and see what ya'll have to say about the show!

Debbie, are they really saying that miniature enthusiasts are "eccentrics"?? I suppose that would help explain some of the treatment and attitude I've received from some of those non-mini people. lol

Silke Janas-Schloesser said...

Oh Debbie that sounds great !!! I´ll try to watch it online. It´s also yours and Nikki´s fault that I´m into this miniature fever ,LOL

Silke Janas-Schloesser said...

Hi Bebbie, it´s Silke here again. Can you explain me where the button is to watch channel 4 ? I checke their website but can´t find any player or something which might show me the show this night ...I thought there´s somewhere a button like QVC has for watching what´s now on TV or similar.... any help is appreciated. Thaaank you !!!

Debbie said...

Hi Sasha, Thanks for letting me know. So sorry that you can't watch it, where you are.

Brenda, oh yes they called us "Eccentrics", but I don't mind always thought I was a bit mad...

Silke on the main page on the left hand side it should say watch online, then underneath watch full shows. But just having read the post from Sasha, I don't know whether you can watch it where you are. I would have thought you could, being in the EU.

thanks for letting us know - i can't wait to watch the program tonight!

Silke Janas-Schloesser said...

Thank you Debbie,I tried, seems it doesn´t work for the rest of Europe, so Sasha is right. :o( booohhhh I´m wining now....booooooohhhh

Debbie said...

Looks like I'll have to give you a blow by blow account on what we see.. What a bummer that people from overseas can't watch it. Especially in this day and age...

Tee Hee..I definitely fit into the "eccentric" mould!

Thanks Debbie for telling us all it was on, i would have missed that. I've watched it now and enjoyed it. I won't say anymore though just yet incase others (and you) haven't seen it yet.

Sasha said...

Oh, I know Debbie! I really wish we could watch it. I understand the BBC not letting people outside the UK watch their stuff (after all the the British pay for the programs with the license fee). But Channel 4??? Aggg!
