Genuine incident - When taking part in a Health & Safety course at work on lifting heavy objects the trainer pointed to a large heavy box and said show me how would you move that? I promptly turned to my deputy and said "Jo will you pick that up and move it" (She did reply "He f******g would too!")
As a former safety trainer I can confirm that you are not the first to have made the witticism.

This is a BBC programme. The very same BBC that you were whingeing about only a few hours ago on the I Hate BBC thread..
I only watch it on Youtube ... and it's a Peter Kay and one of his best mates in real life programme. If he wanted to publish it through the BBC, that's up to him. I still don't like the BBC.

Peter Kays Car Share is produced by Good Night Vienna Productions which is indeed the production company owned by Peter Kay, so strictly speaking it is not a BBC programme, they just happened to buy it to broadcast in the UK (so could have any channel).
I've never liked Peter Kay or found any the stuff he ever made even mildly amusing though, so IMO 'car share' was a waste of the money I pay for licence fee as it is something I would never watch.
I dislike the BBC myself anyway generally because the majority of it's programming is just pretty shit, but I'm happy to pay the licence fee for them providing me with Ken Bruces popmaster on radio 2, Have I Got News For You, and a handful of other comedy progs.

I've entered a competition for having the best door knocker - I'm hoping to win a no-bell prize!

Just to say, the bbc has a lot of programming, not just bbc 1 & 2, it produces bbc 3 & 4 for more specialized audiences, as well as 2 channels for children, CBBC & Cbeebies, 2 news channels, bbc news & bbc parliament, plus numerous radio channels aimed at a wide spectrum of demographics, the bbc is in a difficult position of trying to please all of the people all of the time, which as we all know is an impossible job. No its not perfect, but nothing is. It costs each licence fee payer less than 50p a day compared to a (very) basic 'Sky TV' package at around £1 a day, for which (if you havent already got one) you are required to pay a BT line charge for on top of this.

I think that what most people have a problem with about the BBC that it has grown massively in size over the years, and quite unnecessarily, to become this bloated behemoth with no real direction in that attempt to try to please all of the people all of the time.
It's mandate as 'Public Service Broadcaster' is written in it's own charter as to 'Educate, entertain and inform', so it's diversion into all the additional channels is really just a distraction from what it should be doing.
IMO it should be massively scaled down to 2 main 'entertainment' TV channels plus the 24 hour news channel, and the 4 distinctly different national Radio stations, and a well made, modern, online presence which can provide all other content and video-on-demand to cover all the other stuff it would no longer provide a broadcast channel for.
