The Gadget Show

Tuesday 16 November, 8:00pm on Fiver

Jon Bentley, Suzi Perry, Ortis Deley, Jason Bradbury and Pollyanna Woodward investigate the latest technological innovations. In this episode, Jon, Suzi and Jason battle the recession by making the show themselves, Polly gives a rundown of her favourite ‘tweeters’, Ortis navigates his way around the satnav market and Jon tests unbranded TVs. In a ‘Gadget Show’ first, Jon, Suzi and Jason set out to make the show themselves. The presenters must take matters into their own hands as they film and edit the show using only gadgets and tech that can be found on the high street. The task reaches its dramatic conclusion when Jason joins Birmingham’s best street dancers in a collective dance-off filmed entirely by the general public. Elsewhere, Jon tests a range of unbranded TVs. Are these generic sets actually any good? Do they offer value for money? With the help of a group of top technology journalists, Jon reveals some surprising results. Also this week, Polly gets involved in one of the web’s runaway success stories – Twitter. Which tweets are actually worth following, and which should be avoided? Polly trawls the net to come up with her top five tweeters. And Ortis goes mobile to select the five best satnavs on the market.
