Episode 6

In this brand-new show, 24 ordinary Brits leave behind their jobs and their homes for an extraordinary summer, cut off from the modern world, on a remote farmstead in Devon. Together, they live by the principles of a community which rejects modern values and technology – the Amish – eating what they sow and harvest themselves and going to sleep by candlelight when the sun goes down. Over six months, they are tracked by scientists, who measure the physical and mental changes that result from stepping out of the stresses and complexity of modern life – living simply, communally and frugally without phones, the 24-hour news cycle or social media. As the series comes to a close, it’s been four months since the 24 volunteers embarked on an experiment that asked whether a simpler life is a better, more fulfilling and healthier one. But it’s clear to see that living every day based on a set of Amish principles wasn’t for everyone. In the final episode, the remaining nine volunteers have a chance to celebrate the bounty of summer with a harvest festival feast. Friends and family have been invited, and the community busy themselves with preparations. While IT project manager Fran is in charge of making sure the event runs smoothly, GP surgery receptionist Jamie has an emotional goodbye with one of his beloved pigs. As the farm gate shuts on the experience, the community return to their respective lives, and the architect of the experiment, Professor Barry Schwartz, draws his final thoughts. Would we be happier living without the noise and clutter of our busy 21st-century lives? Is modern life bad for us?
