Default No going back ?

Did anyone see the program No Going Back last night on channel 4 ?
It was about a couple and their brother who went to Africa to
set up a safari holiday camp.
They had a few local problems to overcome ( as they all do).
I was thinking at least we will not have to endure some of the issues they had to endure when we move to Australia or moved,

1) Bush fire's
2) Dangerous wildlife
3) not speaking the queens English
4) laid back attitude
5) shortage of building materials

Life should be easy eh ?

number 5,
read building Materials not builders.
They had loads of would be builders around. As the couple seemed to be the only employer for miles around.

P.s.
This was a tongue in cheek post. I was trying to point out some of the similarities ! maybe it didn't come over in text.

Do they show then one family per programme as its all a bit mixed up here. The Skeggs haven't been too popular and caused a stir in the WA press, mind I can empathise with them (a little bit anyway).

In the UK version of the program they dedicate the whole show to
one family.

Sounds like I have seen this programme ages ago. Was it a repeat? Were they living in a tent for ages?
