Using life writing, this article examines my responses to seeing my house on television — during an episode of Torchwood filmed around Cardiff. The article explores the intersections between personal history, ideas of home and televisual representation. It focuses on the ways in which personal knowledge affects readings of programmes; the relationships between tourists and residents; the emotive nature of responses to representations; and television's role as a recorder of locations. In doing so, the article attempts to bring together the personal and emotive nature of culture with ideas of identity, the media's role in society, and cultural and social change.
