TV ONE - CHANNEL HIGHLIGHTS
Week 15: Saturday 11th April 2015 - Friday 17th April, 2015
TV ONE’s Our World: Wildest Latin America wraps up this week with a look at the southernmost part of South America - the iconic Patagonia.
Covering 800,000 square kilometres of Argentina and Chile, Patagonia is a place of extremes. From vast ice fields and snow-capped mountains to windswept deserts and violent oceans, survival here means being resilient against the ruthless forces of mother nature.
Follow an average year in the unforgiving environment that is Patagonia and see which animals survive in its unlikely places, sitting out the long, harsh winter, and finding solace in the brief reprieve that is spring.
Tune in to witness Patagonia’s fascinating wildlife and the cunning ways they’ve evolved to adapt to a relentless winter in Southern America’s last great wilderness.
OUR FIRST HOME

Over the past 10 weeks, the Schreuder, Wardlaw and Gourley families have bought and transformed three tired, mouldy and dated houses into three stunning homes. At auction, each family will get to keep whatever money they make over the reserve price. The family that makes the most profit percentage gain on the original purchase will win an additional $100,000 for their kid’s first house deposit.
On Sunday, it’s live auction night for the Gourleys as their three-bedroom home in Avondale goes under the hammer. Has their renovation and design created an appealing package for a potential buyer?

GEORGE CLARKE'S AMAZING SPACES
THURSDAY 16TH APRIL, 7.30PM
Good news for his legions of devotees: the Sunderland architect is back with more bonkers projects and full-throated enthusiasm.
In this first episode we meet a plane fanatic determined to convert a mouldering private jet into a luxury crash pad. “Oh my word! It’s knackered!” says Clarke, surveying the wreckage happily.
In Norfolk, a chap with Romany heritage is transforming a Victorian railway carriage into a two-bedroom home without such luxuries as a plan or a budget.
Leaving them to the graft, Clarke hitches a ride in a helicopter into the Italian Alps, where he runs out of adjectives in his efforts to describe the beauty of a solar-powered bothy.
