I disagree with most comments here. In American version they just take away all their stuff and don't replace that emptiness with nothing, but in this version they give these people something positive and real to hold on to. And I also like it that they don't make to big of a deal out of their hoarding, because I think that only helps convince people how big and unsolvable their problem is. You know, like a little kid, if the kid falls and a parent is like: "OMG, are you ok?", chances are the kid will start to cry, but if you let the child react first it will probably just get up and continue with whatever it was doing before.

I agree with both of you, hoarding is an obsession which can lead to all kinds of problems. Doing this doesn't solve anything on the long run anyway. It might for a couple of weeks, but hoarding is a disorder that only therapy can fix. It's nice watching this, but the American Hoarders (A&E) series have more extreme cases than this and they get a lot more counseling and help from relatives. This is just a quick fix and nothing more..

I agree with Lizadeb. Accept that these people don't seem to be consumed with the filfth that goes along with many of the seriously ill people on Hoarders. I wonder if the schock of seeing everything in that warehouse and getting a good picture of just HOW much stuff they have is really very helpful clinically. And then the re-design of their homes so spectacular that it might shock them into a healthier life style? I do wish they were given funds for treatment though--clearly they need help. Cool idea.

This is the British version of hoarders; only in this case the hoarding is not seen as a mental disorder, but as something that can be cured by the redesigning of the hoarders' houses. This concept is not only simplistic but wasteful. I do wish the money raised from selling the hoard would go instead (or at least partly) into medically treating the hoarders.
