The IHBC network has been ask to help a TV production company in Belfast to suggest stories of home restorations from across the UK.
IHBC Chair David McDonald said: ‘We’ve been approached by a TV production company in Belfast called Below the Radar who’ve just won a new series commission with BBC Northern Ireland called ‘Restoration Rescue’, telling the stories of home restorations in Northern Ireland. The series follows a documentary the company made last year called ‘Restoring Ormiston’.
… focus across the whole of the UK…
… searching for possible properties to feature…
‘The team has also been asked to do some additional development work for the BBC nationally – there’s interest in the series having a broader focus across the whole of the UK, for possible transmission on BBC 2.’
‘Claire Burgoyne, Below the Radar’s development producer, is now searching for possible properties to feature from across Britain as follows:
- Homes that are about to be restored – in 2021/2022
- Home restorations that have already taken place (over the past five or so years) – they would love to find amongst other things, a restored bank building, a restored 18th peasant’s cottage, a Georgian manor house, a gate lodge and an 1830s farmhouse.’
‘If you have any suggestions, Claire would be delighted to hear from you. Her email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org’
