Which television channel will win what is becoming a battle to be the natural location for architecture programmes?
Channel 4 has weighed in with the series on the making of the Tate Modern and, of course, its programmes associated with the Stirling Prize. But now up pops Channel 5 with its Sunday lunchtime series of contemporary British architects, which began with Lord Rogers. BBC2, which has long been associated with the subject, now looks under pressure. Press reports suggest long-time BBC producer Eddie Mirzoeff is quitting the corporation because it rejected his plans to make a series of the history of twentieth century architecture.
