The Block’s 2020 season, which will be shot in Melbourne’s bayside at Brighton, looks set to be a battle of the decades.

There will be five relocated homes, one from every decade between the 1920s and the 1960s. I’m guessing the contestant couples will then take their decorative themes from the era in modernising their home which will also come with a rear two-storey extension.

Maybe the time-warp series will be something like Annabel Crabb’s Back in Time for Dinner on the ABC, but for the masses and sponsored by McCafe and Youfoodz.

The worthy sustainable recycling endeavour is similar to the show’s Elsternwick series
two season’s ago when five weatherboard homes facing the wrecking ball were relocated under host Scott Cam’s watch.

This time they will be installed on a 2770sq m holding being bought by Channel 9 for around $15 million.

It was once a nursing home which was bought for $5 million in 2013 by Nick Williams, the son of horse trainer, Lloyd Williams, after its closure. The parcel was onsold by another developer who proposed 13 townhouses.

The next series of The Block starts next month with the refurbishment of the Oslo Hotel,
St Kilda.

The producers quit Sydney in 2011 complaining that they couldn’t cope with our councils.
