"Grundy's Wonders" is an
Tyne Tees Television architectureprogramme presented by John Grundy, which began in 2000.
On the programme, Grundy explores buildings in
north-east England, as well as Cumbriaand Yorkshire. Each programme has a particular theme or type of building, and Grundy names his favourite piece of architecture (on the week's theme) his "Grundy's Wonder", and gives a "Big Boot" to things he dislikes.
Grundy presents the programme in an enthusiastic way, while covering many aspects of the northern English region's history; this is also one of few architecture series on television.
