for all those UK based, have you noticed that there is a new series of Wanted Downe Under starting today on BBC1 at 10am, it is then on daily

often shows a good insight into suburbs, cost of living etc

it will be available on i-player for all those who have read this post too late!

B*gger.... missed this! Very spooky that a new series starts just as we're beginning our journey towards settling in Aus.

It's on tomorrow, and every other morning, so plenty more for those of us who missed this.

this morning was about Brisbane I believe so track it down on BBC i-player if that interests you!

I have sky+ the series and will watch them whenever I need an Australia fix

Does BBC I-player work outside of the UK geographic region? I think it will have geo-blocking so it can't be seen here (similar to Hulu in the USA).

Yes they do block people outside the country from viewing it. You would have to go through a UK proxy server to view it. I just signed up with ukproxyserver.co.uk to allow me to watch it. This will give me access to all the stations that broadcast online in UK.

Watched today 5th Jan 2010. Young couple went to Darwin, she was quite pregnant and they were both members of a large close family. You knew they were not the "move to the other side of the planet" types.

I like the new section, the Reality Check. I wish they would cover a little of the Visa requirement stuff, I personally think this is the most daunting part.

We felt odd watching today, the last time we watch the series we had applied for a Visa, this time we sat watching with our Visa Granted - Yippeeeeee!!!!!

Yeah I thought the same about the couple. I watched it last year thinking about getting a visa started. This year I'm going to start it off before the end of January. Who did you use?. and what is the typical cost of the procss please. Bit cheeky I know.
