    Will be watching it. They asked our school to film this a good number of times, not sure why someone would let them in.

    What channel is it on? 4? I enjoyed the one in Essex, found it to be really interesting and showed how school life really is, not how a lot of parents and people who don't work in a school seem to imagine.

    For those bashing Yorkshire, I am sure that @timbo343 and @tom_newton will join me in burning you at the stake we are not that backwards in Yorkshire Smoothwall is a Yorkshire company so that says how up to date we are

    It is Sky+ HD'd (to see that girl in the advert who shaved off her eyebrows and drew them back on's fake orange glow in true glow style LOL)

    Typical. You show a man fire, and now they want to stop you telling anyone else!

    Thank god they haven't discovered pitchforks....

    On another note - can anyone remember the name of the BBC3 documentary about the children's mental health unit on a few months back?

    I used to work there a few years ago - really looking forward to this! Really good atmosphere there and has to be my favorite place to work yet .

    Quite funny seeing their friends reactions to them being on TV on facebook - instant celebrities lol
