Best of luck Paulandcilia and of course Jen who I've had lots of dialogue with. The WDU programmes, I understand, will start around January time. We will hear 2 weeks before ours is shown on TV but obviously we may not be the first family shown.
I must admit, this week the cold, windy, damp and general feeling around where I live feels bloody miserable. I've been in contacted with a few good pals in Perth and they appear to be much happier esp with the warmer weather and lighter evenings.

Default Re: Wanted Down Under 2010

All 10am to 11am

Monday 4th January 2010
When the Hannah family from Glasgow test out life in Brisbane for a week, it is an emotional roller-coaster as they sample jobs and leisure. Will they decide to make the momentous move for good, or will the pressure divide the family?

Tuesday 5th January 2010
The Roberts from Wigan sample life in Darwin for a week. Kiera Roberts is expecting her first child; she and husband Andy are hoping Australia will be a great place to bring up a young family, but have they underestimated the pull of family thousands of miles away back in the UK?

Wednesday 6th January 2010
The Fosters from Derby test out life in Perth, Western Australia for a week. Husband Wayne wants to know how well they will be accepted as a mixed-race family, while Lois faces a momentous decision - if she moves to Australia for the sake of her younger children, it will mean leaving her fourteen-year-old daughter Amy in the UK.

Thursday 7th January 2010
The Guiles from Berkshire test out life in Auckland for a week. Busy pub landlord Simon and wife Claire want to find out if New Zealand will enable them to give their daughters a better life. Simon wants to retrain as a wine-maker, but will he achieve the work-life balance his daughter Izzy longs for him to have? Ultimately, can they bring themselves to leave family and friends behind in the UK?

Friday 8th January 2010
The Mills family from Eastbourne test out life in Australia for a week. Jem and Sally Mills run a successful psychotherapy business in Sussex, and want to see if they could do the same in the surfers' paradise of Byron Bay. Will the harsh employment realities, and the cost of living down under, put an end to their dream?

Monday 11th January 2010
The Saunders family from South London experience life in Brisbane for a week. It doesn't go smoothly. The family try out camping in the bush, but it ends in tears. Robin Saunders is a specialist shoe-maker - he's been with the same company all his working life. When he samples a similar job in Queensland, his loyalties are torn.

Tuesday 12th January 2010
Series in which British families are given the chance to sample life on the other side of the world. The Boyd family from Ayrshire try out life in Darwin. House-husband James has been trying to persuade wife Naomi to make the move to Australia to give their young children a better life. Finally she agrees, but when they get out there, he's in for a bumpy ride.

Wednesday 13th January 2010
The Wilson family from Liverpool want more space and better weather to enjoy an outdoor life. They try out life in Perth, Western Australia, for a week. John Wilson finds a potential job as an artisan baker. But, the family hadn't bargained on the emotions they experience at the prospect of leaving friends and family back on in the UK.

Thursday 14th January 2010
The Campbell's live near Falkirk with their three energetic children. They're fed up with the cold and rain of northern Britain, and want their family to flourish in the sun so they sample life in Cairns for a week. They love the heat and lifestyle of Northern Queensland, but elder daughter Kirsty doesn't want to leave her friends back in their Scottish village.

Friday 15th January 2010
Sharon Cole lives with her two teenage sons in Yorkshire. She's separated from their father, and wants to find a new life in New Zealand, leaving sad memories behind. She and her boys try out life in Auckland for a week. They get a glimpse of an optimistic future, but crossing the world to get away from the past isn't that easy.

and at least another week on top, but with no details yet.

Thank you

The BBC website was quite poor for information when I looked.

Hopefully some of the later programmes will be updates on previous years as they have been in the past.

Always good to brighten up a dull and miserable January, even if it is a bit repetative

Nice to see them branching out a bit and not focusing exlusively on the big cities.

Been looking for the thread I read a little while ago about the BE members who were being interviewed for this series.

Can't locate it though - can anyone point me in the right direction (or was I imagining it after one too many beers??)

Sportsendurance was one of the members who was due to be on it this year, his family went to Perth as far as I remember!?
