One of our favourite travel programmes on TV, Ben Fogle’s New Lives in the Wild, has started Season 6, in which Ben meets people who have turned their backs on the daily grind and have setup something new or wild somewhere new and wild! It’s a great insight into what people can do if they really want to do something different and get away from it all.
Ben begins his travels this season in the remote Wilderness Island, off Australia’s north-western cape, to meet Jim, who is pursuing his “Robinson Crusoe” dream.
This series will include a woman who set up a farm on the edge of the Sahara, a hostel owner in the Guatemalan jungle, and a British couple who founded an Alpaca farm in Spain.
You can see the series on My5.
