I was reminded of a great UK tv show after speaking with one of our tour-goers. Britain's first Passive House, amongst others, have been featured on it. It's such a great show – Grand Designs. I really wish our HGTV had something more to offer... Host Kevin McCloud documents self-builds of particular architectural interest. It's in it's 16th season now and has off-shoots in Australia and 'Abroad'. It's worth checking out (although I noticed most of the videos have recently been removed from YouTube :( I found a couple for you through other channels:
