That program was produced with consultation by Dr Peter Kemp and Dr Peter Dingle from memory. I remember being sent an email from Peter Kemp, advising when it was going to air. They had a few case studies of real homes & families, and conducted mould inspections.

Just a word of warning though....
Vinegar has been shown to be good at killing mould in porous surfaces. However there can be a trade-off.
If you regularly clean tiled surfaces with vinegar, you are slowly damaging the grout. Most grout is calcium rich, and calcium is etched by acid (vinegar is an acid) making it destructive. Its best to not use it on tiled surfaces unless you really need to.
