Just watched it on iplayer, excellent job guys. I will watch it again later with my family - see if I can convince them to come to Boxstock 2020 :)

Just watched it on iplayer, well done to the lot of you! what an excellent programme. Havent built much this year as mum passed away back in march & i was dealing with her estate for months. This programme has inspired me to get building again!

It’s on iplayer now Greg. Wasn’t there earlier today, but is now. Looking forward to watching it tonight.

So I watched and recorded Cigar Box Blues The Makers of a Revolution on BBC last night. I spotted a couple of my creations which was great. But it was supposed to be available on iplayer which i told my out of town friends and family about but it says 'not available on iplayer'. Anyone know why? Does anyone know if it will be available ever?

Tickets bought and hotel room booked. Got a pretty good deal at the nearby Premier Inn. 2 nights for the wife and I for £67. No breakfast included, but I’m sure we’ll find a “greasy spoon” or there is always Wetherspoons. Really looking forward to it.
