Morse Family

Wanted Down Under, Series 8 Episode 8 of 20

On the surface, Glenn and Sue Morse live an idyllic life in the countryside with their two children. But long shifts as a policeman means Glenn's missing out on seeing his young children grow up, and self-employed quantity surveyor Sue is feeling the pressure.

They're considering drastic action to turn their lives around. Moving to New Zealand would see Glenn turning his back on a 20-year career to become a house husband, while Sue becomes the sole earner.

On a trial week in Auckland, the couple discover that while work may be available for Sue, it would come at a cost.
