Radio Times

How many times have you watched as a couple or family decide to give up their life for a new start on the other side of the world and wondered how it panned out for them? Did they stay or did they go?

This series answers that question as Nicki Chapman revisits some of the people featured last year. In this episode she meets up with the
Cliff family from Leeds, who in 2011 spent a week in Australia to see whether they were going to make the big move. She discovers whether their plans to emigrate were derailed by high prices and the strained emotions of their initial visit.
