Turkey

Episode 1 of 6

Six women each live with six different tribes. Charlie Brades from Hampshire joins the Yoruk, a tribe of nomads who live in the mountains of southern Turkey.

Six British women swap their everyday lives for life as tribal wives in some of the most remote communities on earth. Like many women today juggling career, home and family, they feel that something is missing. By spending time in societies where female roles are very different, they hope to find answers that could change their lives.

Twenty-three-year-old Charlie Brades from Hampshire joins the Yoruk, a tribe of nomads who live in the remote mountains of southern Turkey. Charlie is fiercely independent but her life has been far from carefree. Her mother has a long history of mental illness and as a teenager Charlie was often left to her own devices. Living in a one-roomed tent with a Yoruk family of seven - including the father's two wives - proves quite a challenge for Charlie, but ultimately forces her to confront some home truths.
