Van Life

When Kirsty's youngest son goes to university, she decides to go in search of adventure - she buys an old plasterer's van, and moves into it.

When Kirsty's youngest son goes to university, she decides to go in search of adventure. At the age of 47 she buys an old plasterer's van, and moves into it - knowing nothing about vehicles or DIY, and with a fear of heights so strong she gets scared of big hills.

She starts a Youtube channel to record her journey, and over the next eighteen months goes through a radical change. But through the story of this change, we hear about her past - and what she's left behind.

Produced in Bristol by Polly Weston.
