Make My Home Big­ger

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

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.
