Philippe Starck's School Of Design – BBC Two
BBC Two joins forces with French design guru Philippe Starck to help find a new generation of British design talent. After a nationwide search, Starck offered 12 would-be designers a chance to join him on a design course in Paris. These aspiring designers have a unique opportunity to learn and work with him and his team. Only those with the talent, drive and vision to create the next "must have" products of the 21st century will succeed as Starck gradually whittles them down until one student is rewarded with a six-month work placement at his design agency in Paris.

Saving The Decades – BBC Four and BBC Two
The first television history of the heritage debate, Saving The Decades tells the story of how Britain, in a radical period of post-war change, decided what to keep and what to lose and how attitudes to the past and feelings about heritage shifted. In a seven-part series for BBC Two, architecture critic Tom Dyckhoff embarks on a journey around Britain, taking a key event or battle that defined each decade's attitude to heritage. He begins with post-war Bath, where the bomb damage to Britain's most beautiful city resulted in the birth of listings, and ends in Britain's most multicultural street, Brick Lane, where debates about what to save and what to lose are defined by cultural, religious and commercial interests. A fully-funded Open University production with the BBC, Saving The Decades combines social history, ideas, emotion and archive to tell the story of the men and women who campaigned and protested to protect and preserve Britain's heritage.
