In the final programme from mainland Europe, John Escolme is in Sweden again, this time at one of the biggest collections of functionalist houses in the world. Developed in western Stockholm in the early 1930s, Södra Ängby was considered a far off location for a housing development, but within a few short years the area's combination of woods, lake views and fresh air became the suburban ideal. Meet the 21st century residents determined to keep the houses and lifestyle true to form. 

Producer/Presenter, John Escolme.
