VIBE – Saturdays from 10 November, 7.30pm

Revisit the lives of the people whose inability to part with their belongings is so out of control that they’re on the verge of personal crisis. Whether they’re facing eviction, the loss of their children, jail time, or divorce, these are the hoarders whose helplessness to let go has led them down a path that is not only cluttered, but dangerous. Each episode follows two people struggling to overcome their compulsive behaviour while experts work to put them on the road to recovery. For some, throwing away even the tiniest possession – a sponge, a button, an empty box – is so painful that they’re unable to complete the cleaning process, no matter the consequences. For others, professional help and an organiser’s guidance give them the strength to recover.
