In the last century, on the first ever series of Grand Designs, a young Kevin McCloud witnessed as a ground-breaking co-operative of ten families, called The Hedgehogs, built their own homes on the edge of Brighton. The council bought them land and covered the cost of construction; the deal being that in return for their labour, and lots of it, they would get to live in their self-built homes at reduced rent. Unpaid, they slogged away for over two years on this pioneering venture, based on revolutionary designs from architect Walter Segal. A decade later, Kevin returns to see if the houses, and the families that built them, have stood the test of time.
Grand Designs. Channel 4: 9.00pm
