Wanted Down Under is a BBC One morning television series, which has been running since 2007. The programme shows families considering emigrating from the UK to either Australia or New Zealand.


Groups of families are flown to Australia or New Zealand. Each episode focuses on one family. The families explore accommodation, lifestyle and employment and each family member has to vote on each item. There is also a sequence where the family are given a rundown of the cost of living in Australia or New Zealand as compared to the UK, and they see what estate agents think they could get for their UK home. At the end of the program the families have to make an overall vote.

Wanted Down Under Revisited[edit]
