BBCs Wanted down under program makes a return

BBC Wanted Down UnderThe ’s extremely popular Wanted Down Under program makes a return on the 2nd January 2008 at 9:15am.

Nadia Sawalha presents the second in the series in which British families are given a look at life down under.

Wanted Down Under will be showing every day from the 2nd to the 11th of January on BBC1

I’m unsure why the beeb has decided to show such a popular program at a time when most folks are at work but it’s still good to see so much interest being shown in a new life down under.

The first in the series covers the Treanor family from Paisley who are facing the daunting decision of whether to emigrate to New Zealand.

While parents David and Yennifer yearn for an easier life and more time with the kids, teenager Caitlin must be persuaded to leave her real dad behind.

Sounds like some real dramas! ;) Because we won’t see this new series Oz I’d appreciate anyones comments on what the show was really like :)

    Tis the first time I have every blogged. Co-incidentally after reading the above con. I just heard an excellent programme on BBC;’ Radio 4 “http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/womanshour/03/2008_30_thu.shtml” . Its called Would You Ever Emigrate? – Starting a new life abroad.

    PS – Impending move to Perth WA. Scared stiff and wonder what it’s like? Any pointers would be gratefully redeemed.

    I hope they make a third or fourth series of the show as we are really looking into moving to Oz and think this programme could give us a fantastic insight.

    Does anyone know if they are planning a third series? We really enjoyed the second one (thanks to sky+ we can watch them in the evening), and they are starting ‘catch-up’ ones from today….

    we really want to apply try out the Aussie lifestyle, and this show would be a great opportunity!!

    Hey Laura, I’m glad you’re enjoying the show.

    Outside toilets hey? I thought they only had those in Yorkshire :)

    Also, if your an IT Professional you’d be pretty popular down under in many of the larger cities at the moment :)

    Cheers

    Am watching this programme – I only found it by accident this morning – WE WANNA BE ON THIS SHOW!!! So far, they’ve laughed at the prospect of an outside toilet, and they don’t want to live too far from town. Anyway, am fascinated and going to watch the rest of the show …. Anybody want a couple of IT professionals?
