Dermot O'Leary (Comic Relief special)
Leopard Films for BBC One, 26 April 2004 to 15 October 2010 (11 series)
Less of a gameshow, more of a lifestyle show. The presenter shows up at the home of a family, who then rummage around, and try and find all sorts of tat to try and sell at car boot. The items are valued by an expert, who invariably tells them that their treasured childhood possessions are worthless.
We then watch the family attempt to sell all this stuff at a car boot sale, in order to try and make a certain amount of money, usually to finance a meal out/trip to a theme park/new shower. It would appear to be very fixed, as teams seem to make their target despite not selling half their stuff.
All in all, a total waste of time, but half an hour or so whizzes by quite pleasantly. Not unlike going to a car boot sale really.
