The Competition to Find Britain's Top Woodworker on Sky History

Sky's tweets trying to justify the tattoos have now been removed.

I don't understand why a reality show about woodwork is even being broadcast on Sky History, it should surely have been on Sky One? I must admit, when I first saw the trailers a few weeks ago I thought to myself "this looks stupid and an obvious attempt to copy bake off style format for another genre" so doubt I'd have tuned in anyway.

Because it was commissioned by/for Sky History not by Sky One.

A show about the art of woodwork seems like a better fit for the former rather than the latter to me.

I presume they are referring to A&E networks removing the video, rather than Sky History, expect that to go imminently too.

What's the story with Sky History and A+E Networks? It was The History Channel, when did it become Sky branded?

Well, obviously! But it's an odd show for them to be commissioning really. The channel should be specialising in documentaries about the past and things connected to history, not a reality show about woodwork. I think it would actually seem like a better fit for Sky One out of all the Sky branded channels, it would be their attempt at cashing in on the baking/sewing/pottery competition shows that already exist.

History has been showing shows like Ice Road Truckers and Pawn Stars in the last decade so Chopped isn't really that out of the blue for them.

I’d argue Pawn Stars also fits the history genre.

I think History in the States also commissioned a US version of Top Gear, which was odd.

and the reply from someone who suggested that the series should be renamed Not Goerring Out.

I think this show is likely to end up on this list

(The last series added to this list being The Herman Cain Show, which was pulled after the guy got coronavirus, and died)

So is he in every episode? I don't know the format

He continued tweeting for a while after he died so I don't see why he couldn't have presented a TV show from the other side too:

The format is like bake off, they make something every week, the worst one goes home. So, presumably if they have pulled the entire show, he is in enough episodes to warrant it.
