Kevin McCloud's Escape to the Wild
Kevin McCloud travels the globe in search of incredible stories of ordinary people who have quit the rat-race and moved to some of the most remote places on the planet. Over four episodes, Kevin travels to Tonga, Belize, Chile and Sweden to meet British families who have relocated in pursuit of a pared down existence. Along the way he poses the question: does a simpler, more creative life make you happier?
As our cities become more crowded, and our lives ever more stressful, Kevin also wants to find out what we can learn from this new type of wilderness living. From natural building techniques to homespun energy generation, how can these 'wild technologies' be used to improve our own lives?
