Bleak Old Shop of Stuff

In a remarkable and audacious experiment, The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff is the first television programme in over one hundred and seventeen years to be made using traditional Victorian television making techniques. Honestly. Here on the Red Button we'll show you how the sometimes relatively fearless cast and crew coped with steam cameras, on-set urchins and the occasional cholera outbreak behind the scenes.
