Make My Home Bigger
Tuesday, 9.30pm, LifeStyle Home The first words spoken in this program are: ‘‘ Space, it’s a national obsession.’’ No, of course it’s not Star Trek, it’s yet another slight British renovation series. This time we follow a series of owner-builders as they attempt to improve their lot in life by making their houses bigger. Host Jonnie Irwin, of Escape to the Country fame, is cheery and bright, like a perky bus driver on a miserable day, but he’s no Kevin McCloud. Though the program slavishly copies the Grand Designs format, it is a mere renovation snack compared with McCloud’s three-course meals.
