Keep warm this winter with The Home Channel

Winter, it seems, has finally arrived, so snuggle up and tune in to The Home Channel with a great line-up of shows this June.

Finest Homes

Palesa Themba is back with a brand-new series of Finest Homes, and this time we’re taking things up a notch with some of the grandest homes you’ve seen.

In this season, audiences are treated to a visual feast of modern masterpieces and character-filled homes that showcase noteworthy architectural creations across the country reflecting the beauty and diversity of South African design.

Palesa meets the creative minds behind these innovative homes, inviting viewers to explore the spaces and the lifestyles of the people who live in them. From intriguing structural designs to exquisite interiors and landscapes, each episode offers a glimpse into the latest trends with expert insights from local design connoisseurs. 

Wednesdays 20:00 / Saturdays 15:00

Grand Designs Australia

Grand Designs Australia follows the journeys of homeowners who have gone to the extreme to build their dream homes. From the unusual to the sublime, host, Peter Maddison goes along for the ride, witnessing the trials and tribulations of the building process.

Inventiveness and innovation are the name of the game as homeowners find unique and clever ways to create one-of-a-kind, high-performing homes in a time of soaring property prices, environmental extremes and even personal tragedy.  

From Tasmania’s Chain of Lagoons, to the breathtaking Snowy Mountains; a postage stamp block in the backstreets of Melbourne, to the rolling green hills of Australia’s hippy capital Nimbin, Grand Designs Australia heads to all points Down Under to seek out the nation’s most passionate and creative homeowners.

Whether it’s a spectacular Mediterranean castle, a repurposed dairy shed,  a spaceship-like domed house with the world’s best view, or a mid-century glass box… this season of Grand Designs Australia is the most daring yet!

Thursdays 21:00 / Saturdays 10:30

Escape to the Country

Then, a favourite on the channel, Escape to the Country is one for those who dream of getting out of the city. The show follows home buyers looking to move from the bustle and business of major metropolitan centres and start a new life in a more rural setting.

The show hosts help these home buyers by not only taking them to view a variety of properties but also giving them a tour of their potential new home-towns so that they can get a taste of life on offer in the country.

It’s all about finding a place to call home, and a community that these buyers know they will fall in love with.

Mondays 21:00 / Sundays 18:00

Freshly Picked

And finally, discover the ultimate in feel-good food with Simon Toohey on Freshly Picked, a cooking series exploring the benefits of plant-based, sustainable, fresh, flavour-packed cooking.

Along the way Simon shows us how to build exciting flavour combinations with everyday fruit and veggies and dishes out plenty of tips on how to eat fresh and get it right.

He will also be joined by an exciting selection of passionate guests all ready to share the secrets to their delicious produce, from a caper grower to a fruit producer and a tofu maker.
