Restoration property travesty

Anybody watched restoration home?

It's a BBC2 spin or rip off from the excellent grand designs series.

The difference is that they don't have the knowledgeable Kevin Mcloud presenting but a rather clueless
Caroline Quentin.

Last week she watched as some gormless banker type in the home counties rendered his lovely 30s brick pumping station without any of the presenters passing a comment.  This was not restoration but of the worst kind. 

Kevin wouldn't have let the clueless couple get away so lightly.

Watch the program and see what you think.

So glad to read someone else shares my view - such promise was swept aside, ending in a characterless 'new build' property. The glorious brickwork, the utterly unique interior... ignored. Raped.

And to cap it all, the 'hugely-out-of-her-depth' Quentin enthuses like a naive schoolgirl.

Travesty is putting it mildly.

Can't understand the efforts to show us the history of such a building, then see it evaporate under render and bookcases. Would love to know McCloud's take!
