Everyone enjoys a glimpse 'behind the scenes' of Television – especially when things go wrong. After all, not everything goes according to plan as you can see in this hilarious video clip from the series!
Tommy Walsh's mate Tony finally gives in when challenged to eating a whole doughnut without licking his lips and accidentally falls over a fence during the process!
The series was great fun to work on for everyone in front of the camera and equally for the crew and production team behind the scenes.
During the filming of the Eco House, the producers at Free Spirit were eager to show real mistakes and problems as they happened. We believe that this gave the series genuine credibility and created a feeling of realism that viewers could relate to.
Problems with bad weather, late deliveries and unsuitable materials all conspired to threaten the grueling 60 day build schedule.
The producers at Free Spirit felt that it was very important to including these problems and challenges in the show and to see how Tommy and his team overcame them in a positive and creative way.
It was important to strike a balance of being informative and at the same time entertaining. We feel we achieved this and the audience figures for the series confirmed it. The show exceeding all expected viewing figures and became one of the most successful series ever on Discovery Real Time. Tommy Walsh's Eco House is a 10 part series produced by Free Spirit and commissioned by Discovery Real Time Channel 271 (Sky channel 240). Due to popular demand, the series is regularly repeated.
