you should watch some of their shows. It can give you a lot of great ideas.
In the 1970s, when home video (VCRs) came along, DIY instructors quickly grasped its potential for demonstrating processes by audio-visual means. In 1979, This Old House, starring Bob Vila, premiered on PBS and started the DIY television revolution. The show was immensely popular, educating people on how to improve their living conditions (and the value of their house) without the expense of paying someone to do it or hiring a professional..
Bob Vila set the stage for all the other DIYer Home/Renovation TV Shows/Magazines/Web Sites.
Im not 100% sure but I would say cooking shows like the Food Network were built on Julia Childs reputation. Yrs later Emeril Lagasse came out of the wood work and put a BAM,BAM effect on the industry.
