Can Cyclists Power a House?

Bornholm House
The BBC's Bang Goes the Theory show decided to find out how much electricity the average British family of four uses in a day. They attempt to power a house for an entire day solely through human pedal power.

For reasons I will never understand, the BBC doesn't allowing embedding of their videos. So... here's the link.

Can 80 cyclists power a house for a day?

Thanks to Matthew from Spacing.ca for the link.
