hello Pootle,
Aye usually these programmes are a little eccentric but so far very much watchable with some elements of Bushcraft how they're living etc.. If they're still up check out the Channel 4 link or YouTube.
Regards
David

The series has been quite good, I`m always amazed by how much people can achieve in the circumstances either by their own skills or bartering.
I found the chap in the Swedish episode a bit odd, he mentioned that in the UK he`d power washed wheelie bins at 2.50 a go, doing 250 a day, had loads of money, a house and car. But the couple turned up in Sweden with only 2000 between them.
Sometimes I wonder if the people featured are running away from something, rather than edging toward a simpler lifestyle.
