Air date set for second 'Restoration'

By
The second series of BBC Two's Restoration will begin on July 13 at 9pm.

The series, presented by Griff Rhys Jones, gives viewers the opportunity to save one of twenty-one historic buildings at risk of demolition.

"I have been lucky enough as part of my job to visit all 21 buildings. I love my job," said Griff Rhys Jones. "There are some pretty crazy structures up for consideration this year from Salt Mills to Radar Stations.

"There are some extravagantly beautiful places from aristocratic town houses to disused pumping stations.

"There are moving buildings from abandoned Medieval Archbishops Palaces to an Arts Centre in an old convent in Derry.

"I suspect that this series will be even more gripping than the last."

The building that accrues the most viewer votes will be restored using funds raised through the The Restoration Fund, a BBC Appeal and registered charity.
