Second Criminals... episode tonight - C5, 8pm

Thoroughly enjoyed doing The Wright Stuff this morning. Now for my third hour on Channel 5 today:

What does this episode focus on, you ask? Here's what the Radio Times says:

If I get out of this voiceover session in good time, I will be home to live tweet it. If you'd like to join the fun, the hashtag is #caughtoncamera.

And don't forget if you miss it at 8pm, it's repeated at 9pm on C5+1. And then it'll be up on Demand 5.

Thanks to everyone who has watched and enjoyed Episode 1. I hope you told your friends and I hope you'll like tonight's episode just as much.

And the results are in

Criminals: Caught on Camera went out on Friday night and was Channel 5's highest rated programme of the evening. I had a look at how it was doing on Demand 5 yesterday and noticed it was the channel's second most-watched programme.

I had another look this morning and saw it had moved up to become the most watched programme on Demand 5. Where, at the time of posting, it remains. I don't have to tell you how chuffed I am about this.

I'm scheduled to appear on the Matthew Wright programme on Channel 5 this Friday at 9.15am, ahead of the second episode of Criminals... which goes out at 8pm.

If you want to watch last week's episode, it's all here. I promise you it's a goodie:

Criminals: Caught on Camera - a reminder

Channel 5, at 8pm tonight. As the Radio Times says, episode 1 "focuses on drunkenness and violence".

The hashtag is #CaughtOnCamera

It really is a very good watch. Please spread the word...

Criminals: Caught on Camera press listing and shots

Always good to finally see it in the Radio Times.

So that's 8pm on Friday 18 October, neatly sandwiched between World's Strongest Man and Hens Behaving Badly. Two people on facebook thought the Hens in question were actual chickens. They're not. They are young ladies on their hen nights. It is a reminder of the value of having a programme title which does exactly what it says on the tin. Hence, I suspect, the slight tweak to our programme name. With Criminals: Caught on Camera, you know exactly what you're going to get.

The plan is to split the series into two with three episodes going out before Christmas, and three going out in January, though that may change.

These are the press shots:

and this one taken in Chester...

As I said in a previous post, this series has been a long time in the making. I'm really looking forward to seeing it on screen.

Caught on Camera tx date

Channel 5 have confirmed the first episode of Caught on Camera will be broadcast at 8pm on Friday 18 October.

I'm not sure exactly what I can say about it in advance, but I can tell you it seems like a long time since I signed up to the project, in March earlier this year.

Whilst continuing to present the BBC Surrey Saturday breakfast show I have spent most of the summer filming in various locations, and the programme has been coming together nicely in the edit. 

My last weekday breakfast show on BBC Surrey was on 19 October last year, and when I left I had no idea that twelve months later - almost to the day - I'd be presenting an hour of prime-time terrestrial TV, with five more in the offing. 

I suspect most of my blog posts over the next few weeks will be Caught on Camera-related. I'll hopefully be able to post up some press stills in the next few days. There might be some publicity activity surrounding the series. If there is, I'll point you in the right direction. 

In the meantime please tell your friends: Caught on Camera, Friday 18 October, 8pm, Channel 5.
