ABOUT THE SHOW

Daring, or down-right crazy?

We all occasionally dream of giving up the day job and moving away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. But some people take their desire to get away from it all to the extremes.

Ben Fogle travels the far reaches of the planet to meet those who have chosen to live life off the grid and who have turned their backs on the trappings of Western society and set up home in some of the most isolated locations on Earth.

Ben wants to discover the realities of leaving it all behind – is it daring, or down-right crazy?
