A Grand Program
8 January 2006 | by (Perth, WA) – See all my reviews

'Grand Designs' is a very good program in which it follows people building their dream houses and all the dilemmas that come with it. I must admit a lot of the designs are very modern, quite impractical - definitely not my cup of tea, but it's a great show but I wonder why anyone would want to live in that sort of house. Just my opinion. That's why it's nice to see people's creative sides work, see what other people like, see people's dreams unfold before your eyes. The presenter is very good - he actually writes it himself, which is definitely a credit to him! All in all, a great show, very entertaining!
