Could the RIBA plan of work be changed by a BBC property show, asks Eleanor Jolliffe

Like many aspiring architects growing up in the early 2000s I was mildly addicted to Grand Designs, and I must admit that self-build and home makeover shows remain a guilty pleasure to this day.

There’s something incredibly satisfying about watching the whole project come together, perfectly staged in an hour – so unlike the projects I usually work on which take years even to break ground.

Has my enjoyment slightly dimmed as I become more experienced and see details bodged or mishandled? Of course. I’ve yet to stop watching them though.
