Toolbox (ITV 1970, Mike Smith, Jill Smith)

Published

on


Toolbox was a Sunday morning magazine show presented by Mike Smith and his wife Jill. Each edition looked at a different aspect of do-it-yourself.

The 13 episodes were a basic overview of D.I.Y. from what you should have in your toolbox to the basics of painting to first steps in carpentry.

The following year Mike Smith returned in a series called Jobs Around the House and Garden, essentially a continuation of this series.
