Peter aka geriatric 1927
Peter, also known on YouTube as geriatric1927

When 79-year-old Peter made films at home on his computer and posted them on YouTube, he reached more than two million viewers worldwide.

In the second part of our series on the home technology revolution, the Money Programme's Max Flint investigates this new world of DIY TV and talks to those seeking fame and fortune there.

It's also big business - Google bought YouTube last year for a staggering 883m.

And now there's a flood of new companies from 'RathergoodTV', which has its office and studio on a converted farm, to writer and broadcaster Clive James who is 'Doing It Himself' and broadcasting his new show online.

Is DIY TV going to change the face of television forever?

The Money Programme: DYI TV - on Friday, 16 February, at 1900 UK time on BBC 2
