When Holidays Go Horribly Wrong

As a nation, we spend a staggering 60 billion pounds a year on day trips. For some, it’s a chance to get out and enjoy a day of fun with friends and family. Whether it’s trip to the zoo or a something a bit more adventurous. When these day trips go right, they're the stuff of dreams. But when they go horribly wrong, they can be catastrophic. Actress Glynis Barber narrates this 90-minute special that features first-hand interviews with people whose day trips ended in disaster.

Highlights include a trip to the zoo that ends in horror as a young family encounter an escaped chimpanzee. A day at a safari park turns to a walk on the wild side as a pair of dualling camels cause £6000 of damage to the family car, rendering it a write-off.

There are near misses up in the air including the tourist who soon regretted going on a hang-gliding day trip in Swiss Alps. Self-confessed adrenaline junkie Chris Gursky was looking forward to seeing Switzerland from bird’s eye view but little did he know that his pilot had failed to attach the safety cord, and he would be clinging on for dear life with a potentially fatal drop of 5,000 feet. An avid base jumper’s day trip hits the rocks when his parachute fails to deploy, leaving him helpless and in agony.

Other stories include mountain trip which turns to terror, as a runner comes face to face with a cougar. A day tripper is enjoying a swim with hammerhead sharks, until he witnesses his fellow diver being savaged by the apex predator. And a deadly jellyfish stings a holidaymaker, leaving him fighting for his life.

Expert interviews include travel presenters Jasmine Harman and Danni Menzies and journalist and broadcaster Simon Calder.

The Hamptons: Home of the Rich and Famous

Load the Lamborghini, dust off your diamonds and step inside the world’s most opulent destinations in Playgrounds of the Rich and Famous. This sumptuous series steps inside the luxury locations of choice for the obscenely rich and celebrity A listers. And we find out the secrets of these exclusive, decadent destinations, what first attracted the world’s most privileged to them, and the infamous stories of what the rich and famous got up to while they were there.     

In this episode we’re headed over the pond to the American super rich haunt on the Atlantic coast, The Hamptons.  With beach front mansions changing hands for over £50 million, famous owners including the likes of Stephen Spielberg, Beyonce and Jay-Z, and Calvin Klein.  

We meet high end estate agent Sarah Minardi.  In the world of the ultra-rich buyers rarely go and view properties, so Sarah is checking out a property in the twenty-million-dollar range for them.  

Despite the mega mansions, Hamptons life is more about the lowkey rather than the ostentatious.  Despite a regular clientele that includes billionaires Duryea’s seafood restaurant doesn’t take reservations or offer table service.  It helps if you can pull up in a multimillion-dollar yacht though.  

In town, Stephen’s Talkhouse has the appearance of a regular bar and music venue.  But with visitors including Paul McCartney who might just get up and play, this is no regular place.  As manager, Nick Kraus points out as recalls getting a visit from Bill and Hilary Clinton.     

Getting out on the water in the Hamptons is regular but expensive pastime.  We hang out with interior designers David, Jason, and Justin as they unwind with friends on the water, before heading off to luxury cocktail party at the home of dentist to the rich and famous, Dr Larry Rosenthal.

The Repair Shop

Today in the Repair Shop, Jay Blades and the team bring four treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life. 

First to arrive at the barn is Jack Laugher with a pair of very prized prizes – two Olympic medals from the 2016 summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, one Silver and one Gold, and both won by Jack in the diving pool. In the years since this double achievement Jack has proudly shown off his medals and has taken them round schools to help inspire the next generation to take up sports. Unfortunately, all that attention has taken its toll on the metal of the medals and their wooden cases. To restore them to their winning ways will be an Olympian challenge for the barn’s silversmith Brenton West and wood wizard Will Kirk. 

Next to arrive at the barn, another memento from far off climes, brought in by husband and wife Barry and Bernadette. This precious musical Jewellery box was bought by Barry for Bernadette while he was in Malaysia with the British Army over 50 years ago, sadly when he sent it back to Bernadette in the UK it was damaged in transit and, though she has loved the box ever since, she has never seen it working. Now the responsibility of giving Bernadette the chance to finally see her beloved box working after fifty years falls to horologist Steve Fletcher. 

The barn’s bear repair pair, Amanda Middleditch and Julie Tatchell are next to be called into action, this time against a mythical monster in need of some TLC. Duncan the dragon arrives with Marisa and her 10-year-old son Jonah. Duncan was given to Marisa when she was just a little girl, since then he’s been a huge comfort through life’s challenges, first for Marisa and now for Jonah. But the years haven’t been kind to Duncan, and it’s down to Julie and Amanda to make sure he’s sturdy enough to carry on his important work keeping the family under his wing for years to come.

Finally, a complicated fix on a simple tool for metal worker Dominic Chinea. Originally owned by Naranji Patel and brought in by his grandson Paresh, this hammer was one of a set of tools bought by Naranji after moving to the UK from India in the 1960s and with which he taught himself DIY to help save money on home fixes. For Paresh the hammer evokes happy childhood memories of helping his grandfather fix things around the home, and symbolic of the life lessons that Naranji instilled in him. However the hammer is no longer fit for purpose – the handle is old and bent and no longer fits the head properly – but fixing the hammer while preserving as much of the original as possible requires some creative thinking from Dom.
