Yes, you were in fact just over the road. I remember because of the incredible coincidence regarding address on a sub.
TV Programme was all actually initiated by a friend's wife (who was then assisted by my wife), but they used our garden as it was better for people to flow through. A little eye opener on the fakery of junk programming like that.
Nothing as extreme as an house clear-out - but I did sell my (last decent) car during the show, and managed to be at work all day to avoid most of the shoot too.
