I'm after a documentary I once saw about a self-building housing co-operative in the UK—or more information about the programmes.

Three or four years ago I saw a TV documentary on a project in the UK under which a group of disadvantaged families were invited to build their own houses in a new plot.
If I recall correctly, the Council provided land, a credit union provided some of the capital, a charity arranged for plans and expert assistance and the people owned their houses in a co-operative once they finished.
Has anyone else seen the programme, or have any information about these kinds of self-building co-operative schemes?
