Channel 4’s reality series, Our Wildest Dreams, continues on Friday after we saw Scottish parents David and Deborah’s journey almost end in disaster when they up-rooted their family in the hopes of building a self-sustainable life in the mountains of Bali. The show follows the lives of a number of extraordinary Brits as they try to escape the monotonous cycles of their life in the UK for an entirely new start – often a more back-to-basics lifestyle – in an entirely different country.
This week we follow Lynn and Richard’s family – who are tired of living as a “food-bank family” in the UK – as they travel to a remote part of Portugal where they’ll be trying to build a more self-sufficient life off-grid. Tired of the hustle and bustle of modern British life and the reliance they had on the charity of others, Lynn and Richard find the calm of the Portuguese country a breath of fresh air. But will they be able to hold up against their new found isolation and make their radical new life work?
Our Wildest Dreams – Friday 8:00pm on Channel 4.
