Good news for his legions of devotees: the Sunderland architect is back with more bonkers projects and full-throated enthusiasm. In this first episode we meet a plane fanatic determined to convert a mouldering private jet into a luxury crash pad. “Oh my word! It’s knackered!” says Clarke, surveying the wreckage happily.
In Norfolk, a chap with Romany heritage is transforming a Victorian railway carriage into a two-bedroom home without such luxuries as a plan or a budget. Leaving them to the graft, Clarke hitches a ride in a helicopter into the Italian Alps, where he runs out of adjectives in his efforts to describe the beauty of a solar-powered bothy.
The architect heads off to Italy, where it seems the residents have also been bitten by the `small buildings are beautiful' bug. The most spectacular place he visits is so high up in the mountains that it's only accessible by helicopter, but this difficulty is more than made up for by the views seen from it. Back in Britain, George meets a man turning a wrecked private jet into a crash pad and a Gypsy tattoo artist with big plans for an old railway carriage. George also challenges his pal, craftsman Will Hardie, to create a woodland retreat for less than the price of a family holiday.
