This observational series follows six British families as they achieve what many of us can only dream of: swapping the day-to-day grind for life-changing adventures in remote corners of the world. Kicking off the series are the Willmotts. In the Himalayas, the Mongolian steppes and deep in the Papuan rainforest, they seek out places and people untouched by the modern world. Theirs is an epic journey that includes encounters with the Dalai Lama and one of the world’s remotest tribes, but will it make a lasting impact on their lives?
