The series sees Jimmy Doherty travelling the world to uncover the incredible stories of ordinary British families who have abandoned the rat race and chosen to set up homes for themselves in some of the most remote places on earth.
Each episode follows Jimmy as he lives and works alongside a different family in a wildly different environment. From the gold rush Yukon territory of Northern Canada, to the jungle interior of a remote Indonesian island, to the banks of the River Nile in Uganda.
Jimmy questions whether exchanging the stresses of modern living for a simpler existence has made these intrepid Brits any happier, and whether we can learn anything from their experience.
In the series Jimmy faces harsh challenges, experiences first-hand what daily life is really like in these remote places and aims to challenge our preconceptions about life outside our overcrowded cities.
