The IHBC has been contacted by TV producer Danae Lebesopoulou who says: ‘We are working on a brand new TV documentary series focusing on the restoration and maintenance of historic British landmarks. The series is for UKTV and is provisionally titled Mega Engineering Fixes, each hour episode will feature a different British landmark and tell the story of how it was originally built, alongside the narrative of current engineering & maintenance works.
…brand new TV documentary series focusing on the restoration and maintenance of historic British landmarks…
‘We will go on location to follow the work of engineers and maintenance teams as they investigate and fix problems. This work allows us to access the history behind the subject, because to fix and maintain its many parts, the teams have to understand how it works and how it was constructed. We will be filming the series between October and February 2021, with a very small crew of three, to help with social distancing protocols.
‘The series is also distributed to a myriad of networks internationally, so the audience reach is global. We are currently looking for historic buildings and structures to include in our series and I was wondering whether you are aware of any ongoing conservation/ restoration projects we could look into’.
If you are aware of any buildings which might fit the bill please contact Danae direct.
