CHATEAU DIY – Series 6

Due to transmit in late 2021

Filming started in November 2020 and continues throughout 2021. In Chateau DIY series 6 we catch up with all our favourite chateau owners as they continue their restoration projects, run their current businesses and launch some fantastic new ones.

Celebrating the ambitious people turning their dreams into a reality across France, we’ve already got some incredible stories in the pipeline. These include massive renovation jobs and a complete overhaul of a huge garden – a task that even the horticulturalists at Kew Gardens would run a mile from!

We will be spending even more time with our families, getting to know them better as they organise trips out of their chateaus and into the local towns and countryside giving viewers further insight into their French lifestyle.

Post 2020, our owners have delayed events to re-book and weddings to be rescheduled – all alongside the bookings for 2021 they already had in the diary. So we know, with confidence, that series 6 is going to be packed full with renovations, builds, events and even more trials and tribulations from across the channel.

We aim to provide top quality programming while also doing everything we can to keep our environmental impact to a minimum, both locally and when filming abroad.

The Unit Base is kitted out with recycling bins, water coolers for easy refills and low energy bulbs. Crew are all issued with re-usable water bottles to reduce plastic consumption and we are committed to sourcing locally and sustainably.

Our productions are signed up to BAFTA's Albert scheme to focus on reducing the environmental impact of filming and to establish a workable and realistic plan to help decrease our carbon footprint. There is a 'think before you print' policy and we only use rechargeable batteries.

We're using low emission/hybrid vehicles for unit cars, taxis and couriers. We ask people to car share and have a 'no idling' policy. We also use offsetting programmes with airlines when booking team travel abroad for those emissions we can't reduce.
