It will include lifestyle programmes such as Fantasy Homes by the Sea, To Buy or Not to Buy and Escape to the Country. It aims to increase awareness of the charity and its services.

It is the third sponsorship deal between UKTV and the Energy Savings Trust, which has sponsored Natural World, Britain’s Best and Quizcoms in the past. It was negotiated between IDS commercial development manager, Dale Mickelwright, Julie Gough, COI senior sponsorship and promotions manager.
