One to Watch: Grand Designs – House of the Year, 9pm, Channel 4

Kevin McCloud embarks on a nationwide journey to examine some of the most cutting-edge contemporary homes, all of them in the running for the 2018 Royal Institute of British Architects House of the Year.

In each episode of this four-part series, he exclusively reveals which houses the Riba judges have selected for the competition’s final shortlist. The last programme of the series will announce the winner of this prestigious prize.

In this first episode, Kevin and his co-presenters architect Damion Burrows, and design expert Michelle Ogundehin, visit five extraordinary homes that dare to be different.

Tonight Channel 4 viewers get a glimpse at a magnificent monolithic dark-rendered block in London; a controversial cutting-edge glass modernist building in Henley; a glorious north London townhouse filled with Nicaraguan mahogany; a beautiful bright red end-of-terrace property that stands out but also blends in; and a smart semi-detached home in Newcastle built by two neighbours working together.

Channel 4 have Grand Designs, tonight at 9pm
