PREVIEW: Ben Fogle's New Lives In The Wild, Channel 5

In the first episode, Ben meets the Powell family who are living an off-grid existence in a hidden valley in the Black Mountains in Wales.



Whilst in their company, Ben climbs into a ravine to maintain the family's hydro electrics, explores the forest with the spirited children, and helps plant the biggest new woodland in Wales for a generation



In next week's episode, Ben journeys to the Suffolk countryside and a secretive patch of woodland, to spend the week with unique character Will, 50, who could be described as a true British caveman.


Ben embraces Will's Stone Age-style existence in the forest and discovers how a childhood passion carved Will's future, the price he paid for following his dream, and how he is steering it back around as Ben meets him at a new stage in his prehistoric life.


Ben Fogle's New Lives In The Wild returns Tuesday 7th September at 9pm on Channel 5.
