Premiering on Sunday 29 January 2017 at 7.40pm on ABC Australia is a Grand Designs Special. Living in the Country sees Kevin McCloud drawing on 15 years of Grand Designs – and the astonishing projects filmed in that time – to look at the challenges of self-building in the great British countryside – where design must embrace and enhance tradition, yet often overcome stringent planning constraints.
Using footage from the best Grand Designs rural builds, and new interviews with experts in the latest architectural thinking, Kevin meets the pioneers transforming agricultural and historic buildings, and bringing cutting edge contemporary architecture to the countryside.
Written and Presented by Kevin McCloud.
Directors: Claire Lasko and Eleanor Brockiehurst.
