Restora­tion Man

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Mon­day, 6.05pm, ABC1 Yes, yet an­other makeover pro­gram, but one that’s more than just a look at some­one’s ren­o­va­tion night­mare. Hosted by Bri­tish ar­chi­tect Ge­orge Clarke, it looks at own­ers who strive to save ne­glected old build­ings and to hell with the ex­pense. Clarke, who left school aged 16 but went on to gain first-class hon­ours in ar­chi­tec­tural stud­ies from New­cas­tle Univer­sity, is ev­ery think­ing woman’s bit of eye candy. He also knows a great deal about ru­ins and how to restore them. Tonight he tracks a Vic­to­rian church as it morphs into a dream home.
