ITV's The Real Good Life

Do you think The Good Life could be remade, with me or Dave playing Tom Good (maybe not!)? If you have seen something on TV or heard something on the radio recently that you want to talk about, tell us here.

ITV's The Real Good Life

Hi there,

A few years ago, we were on Holiday in Wales. A reality-show was on about some people trying to become self sufficient (in food). I think it must have been ITV's The Real Good Life. We don't get ITV in Holland, so I've never came to watch any more than the first episode. This episode, along with a visit to the CAT (Center of Alternative Technology) inspired me in growing my own crops (at least a part of it).

Although this show seams to have flopped, I'm eager to see it for myself. Does anyone know if and how I can get to see it? Is there maybe a stream on the internet, or is it available on dvd?

Thanks!

Robert

I had a quick look on You Tube and couldn't find anything of that name. Sue and Giles live the good life was a spoof on the original - could it have been that?

Yesterday evening I was snooping around this forum and I found a discussion, link:

I think this was it. At least it sounded quite like what I had seen. Thanks for thinking along anyway :icon_smile:

The one with Sue and Giles is the only one I can think of.
