ESCAPE TO THE COUNTRY (2002)
ANOTHER of the “safe” shows highlighted in the government’s charter renewal, it’s now in its 15th series – although there are up to 70 episodes in each. City dwellers are shown around a selection of potential rural retreats. It’s a basic format that has had daytime viewers happily tuning in to more than 650 episodes. Aled Jones and Countryfile’s Jules Hudson are just a couple of the current famous faces.
