Should Sydney Opera House be saved?


It's one of the most beautiful buildings in the world, but the Sydney Opera House is badly in need of an overhaul.

It was the most famous creation of the Danish architect, Jorn Utzon, but he was sacked before the building was completed, and never got to see it.

Since he died last year, there has been a push to realise his original vision for parts of the building as part of its much-needed renovations.

The BBC's Nick Bryant was given a tour by Richard Evans, Chief Executive of Sydney Opera House.
