where/when to watch UK version of show?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

I have noticed a few posts saying that both the UK and the US versions of the show are available for viewing. Since I heartily disliked the US format, but would love to see more of the UK format with Robert Llewellyn as co host, could someone please enlighten me about when the UK version is shown? Is it on TLC? Is it on hiatus while the US season is shown? Or?

Many of the Scrapheap Challenge series (called Junkyard Wars in the US too!) have been shown on TLC in the US. They were transmitted throughout 2000 and you may well see them reappear in 2001. Keep an eye on the TLC/Junkyard Wars website for details of when they are shown: http://tlc.discovery.com/tlcpages/junkyard/junkyard.html.

Good. I look forward to seeing the Brit version. Robert Llewellyn (sounds Welsh, actually) was edgy and humorous, while the American version is simply loud.
