"Channel 4 viewers will be asked to identify Britain's worst building in a new four-part reality series which will culminate in a live broadcast of the building's destruction.

The series, Demolition, beginning in 2005, will attempt to build on the success of BBC's popular series Restoration, which was based around a contest to find the historic building that viewers most wanted to see restored.

But in Demolition, which is being supported by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), viewers will nominate the buildings they want to see destroyed rather than saved."
