Jim and Michelle Macallum believed that living in Australia could offer them the relaxed family lifestyle they craved. But, after 20 years apart, Jim had recently been reunited with his first daughter, and emigrating would mean facing the heart-breaking prospect of leaving her behind in the UK. One year later, we revisit with them to find out if it was a price they were willing to pay for a new life down under.
