The show that did surprise me a few years back was "Towies" with Clayton's Towing.
Pretty well done.
They are still showing it. Not sure what channel but I came across it a week or so ago. The episode I saw was a plane had crashed in some guys backyard and Clayton's were called in to get it out

I wonder if desert collectors is done that way so that it seems like they are "the bloke next door"?
it could only be that, or some bloke started it as home movies.

I am just wondering how we are supposed to address people when we talk to them today?

Sir? - nope - Gender defining
Maam? - nope Gender defining
Excuse me? No - apologetic for no reason
Hey you? - nope I could me inanimate or offended by a label
ahum? - No - too impersonal
Oi - No - colloquial and non inclusive
Hey kid? - no - ageist and possibly threating in a demeaning manner
Buddy? - Nope - Offensive to people who don't have lot of friends
Pal? - na ah - too personal an invasion of my space
Non gender specific, non binary humanoid? - No - offensive to aliens

No bloody wonder everyone just texts these days.
