Explorer Ben Fogle is back with a seventh series of the adventure programme which sees him meet those who have turned their back on the rat-race and set up home in some of the most remote locations in the world. See Ben interact with the brave individuals who, coming from various walks of life, have chosen to venture down a very different path to what they were used to.
