Murderer Graham Dwyer appeared on RTE home makeover show ‘Beyond the Hall Door’ when he was a 27-year-old architect in 2000.

In the clip which was rereleased by RTE News today, a youthful-looking Dywer can be heard explaining what he wanted to achieve with his work, which included a bath with a built-in aquarium.

“The challenge here was to create an individual look around a standard white bathroom suite. The approach I took was a modern one and it creates a more private, focused space around each utility,” he said.

He is extremely friendly towards the camera and is seen joking around at the start of the clip.

At the time Dwyer had just graduated from DIT Bolton Street and had obtained work in a Dublin architecture firm.

During the trial, the jury heard that Dwyer and his wife Gemma had renovated a cottage in Rathmines and purchased their family home in Foxrock which they had also planned to renovate.

However, the couple were hit by the recession in 2007 and Gemma Dwyer lost her job.

During interviews with gardai following his arrest in connection to Elaine's death, he said he sustained "huge" pay cuts following the property crash.
