Property shows have come and gone but one constant with us since 1999 and stronger and bigger than ever is the elite home design Channel 4 television show Grand Designs. Now the fourth series comes to DVD on 5th May 2008 courtesy of Fremantle Home Entertainment, just in time for the Grand Designs Live show at the Excel centre in London from 3rd through to 11th May.

In the years since Kevin McCloud cast his eye on the first of many often incredible home build projects, Grand Designs has grown to spawn the spin-off shows Grand Designs Indoors, Grand Designs Abroad, Grand Designs Trade Secrets, Grand Designs Revisited, the public Grand Designs Live shows in London and Birmingham and a magazine.

Whist other TV property shows have come and eventually sunk under the weight of passing fads and a pile of ill-advised MDF trimmings, Grand Designs has set the standards for design excellence as members of the public set their sights to stratospheric highs to attempt to pull off dream projects that look ambitious beyond anything realistically achievable. As Kevin follows each journey into the self-build unknown offering an unparalleled insight into how elaborate and complicated design concepts work in practice, each episode often turns into a personal and moving voyage of endurance and self-discovery that is eventually mirrored in houses that surprise and delight.

In series four of, "The only worthwhile property related programme on television" (The Times), design expert Kevin McCloud tells the stories of seven ambitious design projects and the people who built them. Amongst the blue-prints, he meets a couple who set up their own architectural practice to realise their goal and meets a music manager who wants to build a Modernist Bauhaus inspired white cube in the middle of a sleepy seaside town. Grand Designs – Series 4 (cert. E) will be released on DVD (£19.99) by Fremantle Home Entertainment on 5th May 2008.

The DVD includes revisited sections plus CGI effects. The episodes in the set are: Waterloo: the Manhattan loft style conversion, Edinburgh: the 19th century stone house, Hastings: the modernist Bauhaus inspired white cube, Dorset: the wooden framed house with tower, Clapham: the modern curved shaped house, Walton: the German huf haus and Glasgow: the wooden house with the sea view.

Fans of the show will not want to miss Grand Designs - Live: The UK's No.1 Consumer Show for Design and Innovation, now in its seventh year. Running from 3rd May through to 11th May at the Excel Centre in London and based on the hugely successful Channel 4 TV series, presented by design expert Kevin McCloud, the live show will inspire you with the latest design ideas for your home.
