Using the WENSS survey, we have selected a complete sample of 26 Giant Radio Galaxies. We have investigated the properties of their radio structures using multifrequency radio observations. A spectral ageing analisys reveals that, among other things, that these sources are typically 50 — 100 Myr old and that their lobes have higher advance velocities than smaller sources of similar radio power. Further, we find pressure gradients in their radio lobes, suggesting that the lobes are still overpressured with respect to the environment. We find no evidence for a cosmological evolution of the radio lobe pressures with increasing redshift, at least up to z ∼ 0.3, other than that caused by our selection technique. A faint, higher redshift sample of giant sources is needed to constrain the pressure in their environments, the IGM. We are well underway with selecting such a sample, and the GMRT can play an important role in studying the radio properties of these sources.
