The Great Interior Design Challenge

Tom Dyckhoff, architecture and design critic for The Times, presents brand-new 12-part BBC Two series The Great Interior Designer, which is putting twenty four Britain’s keenest amateur interior designers to the test.

Throughout the series, brave homeowners give over their bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms, hallways, and studies to put them all to the test. Each episode will follow the wannabe designer’s trials and tribulations as they source materials, select products and try to find everything they need to make their room look great while staying in budget.

It isn’t just the homeowners that give the amateur designers their painfully honest feedback – on hand to give their experienced opinions are Daniel Hopwood, award-winning architect and interior designer, and Sophie Robinson, ex-editor of BBC Good Homes and interior designer.

Production Company Studio Lambert chose the Sony PMW200, shooting to Sony SxS cards, as the camera for main self-shooting on this series.

Challenges facing the production team were mostly based around shooting in low light conditions. Many of the homes were in a state of transformation during shooting, which meant occasions of no practical lighting being available and no access to mains power. The Sony PMW200 has a fantastic  Exmor sensor that far out shines many other cameras in the same price range.

The Sony PMW-200 is a replacement and upgrade to the massively popular EX range .It is the first handheld camera in its class to be equipped with 3 x 1/2-inch Exmor CMOS sensors for excellent sensitivity and enhanced depth of field characteristics.

The camcorder can record in Full HD 422 at 50 Mb/s, delivering exceptional performance, operational versatility and workflow efficiency. Its high-quality MPEG HD422 50 Mbps recording is fully compliant with the latest EBU recommendations for long-form broadcast production and is widely accepted in broadcasting stations and production houses.

The Great Interior Design Challenge travels across the country, from Dorset to Liverpool, and through the ages, from Georgian terraces to Art Deco cul-de-sacs, to introduce a new street and house design in each episode so viewers can learn about their history and how they have affected the architecture of the homes there. The show is also packed full of handy tips and guides for keen home decorators everywhere.
