Love this program and its great to be able to buy them and watch them all. The quality does seem a bit soft watching it on a TV though. Hurry up Channel 4/ Apple and bring the other ones on here. Would be nice to have some of the revisited bits on aswell.
Grand Designs is quite possibly the greatest property program on tv. Kevin McCloud's inclination toward property that incorporates intelligent eco design with modern creature comfort makes him the epitome of lateral design thinking at the micro scale. This program implicitly states that if you have enough capital to build your own home and the time to do it anything is possible!!! A definite must watch if you want ideas to design and build your own home!
