Ben Fogle meets people close to home who have escaped the daily grind in search of a happier and more rewarding life. For the past few years, Ben has been meeting people all over the world who have given up the rat race and started afresh in some of the most remote places on the planet in his hit show, Ben Fogle’s New Lives in the Wild. But what about those here at home, who are looking to escape the daily grind in search of a happier life elsewhere in the British Isles? In Ben Fogle: New Lives in the Wild UK, Ben will meet the people who have made that leap. The people who have quit being a slave to the wage and started a new life in some of the most rural, remote and challenging parts of our country. This brand new five-part series will see Ben travel to Devon to live with the inspirational Mason family. They handed back the keys to their council house in the London commuter belt for four acres of overgrown agricultural land.
