This has been brewing for years...
But here is the first taste...
Pay TV?

It starts on the 21st oct.
The first house is in Victoria and titled "bushfire house", no prizes for guessing whats involved here.
The above hosue in surry hills in sydney is in episode 2

There is more videos around somewhere I think

The first episode is available online, the house I thought was impressive looking, didn't agree with some aspects, very good re-use though.
A little over board with cor-ten imo, and some elements were likely only possible due to the climate.

The presenter isn't great, narrative, no opinion. Was obviously never going to be up to aul kevin, but could be better.
