If you only ever watched terrestrial daytime TV in Britain, you would think we are a nation obsessed with houses, antiques and getting the hell out of Britain. And very much in that order.

Then, after lunch we switch to shows about selling off family heirlooms, and then to mid afternoon shows about moving abroad.
