The family living off-grid, camping out for a house, and building a co-housing community.

Three stories of making a conscious choice to live somewhere, with someone, in some particular way. Featuring the family of four living completely off-grid in Cumbria; a hunt for the residents of a Suffolk town who camped overnight to secure their new-build homes in the 1970s; and the Older Women's Co-Housing group who've built a new community in London.

Presented and produced by Becca Bryers.
