Australian migration show averages 1.5m Brit viewers

In South Australia

From Adelaide Now

GLENELG’S golden sands and the Hills’ koalas will be broadcast to millions of UK viewers later this year as part of a high-rating BBC reality show.

Victor Harbor will also form part of the backdrop for an episode of Wanted Down Under, a reality television program which follows families and individuals deciding whether to emigrate to Australia.

The show airs every weeknight and attracts 1.5-1.8 million viewers.

The program was filmed at Marion’s Westminster School last week, where Birmingham native Chris Randle met with principal Steve Bousfield to discuss opportunities, conditions and salaries.

Mr Randle, a PE teacher and sports co-ordinator in the UK, is considering emigrating to Australia with his wife Gemma and their two children.

 “I live in Birmingham, the UK’s second-largest city after London, and in comparison to here, it is very built-up,” he said.”We are loving the open spaces and obviously the weather is a lot better than what we have at home.”He said visiting Glenelg was one of the trip’s highlights.”The coastline is just gorgeous, the golden sands and the sea; I’ve never seen such crystal-blue water before,” Mr Randle said.The family flew home yesterday, after their week-long visit.

The episode of Wanted Down Under featuring the Randles will be shown in the UK later this year.
