It's been three decades since THIS OLD HOUSE began giving viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the secrets of home renovation.

In honor of its 30th anniversary, producers of the longest-running home improvement show have selected two interesting projects in the Boston area, where the show first got its start. New episodes will follow the revival of a foreclosed and vacant 1870s-era Second Empire in Roxbury, an inner-city Boston neighborhood, and the modest renovation of a 1914 Dutch Colonial in Newton Centre, a small town just west of the city.

New episodes of THE THIS OLD HOUSE HOUR begin tomorrow night, October 8 at 7pm. The half-hour version of THIS OLD HOUSE premieres this Saturday, October 10 at 12:30pm.
