Channel 4 has commissioned production company Talkback to develop a television series that will follow the complete 'makeover' of a town or suburb.
CABE will act as advisor to the series which will identify aspects of the chosen town that need improving and produce design solutions to these problems. A number of competitions are likely to find architects to take part.
Programme-makers are currently searching for a suitable town. A spokesman for Talkback said that several locations are being considered.
