Eden Final Episodes Airdate: August 2017
In March 2016, 23 men and women – including a doctor, a vet, chef, carpenter and shepherdess – left everyday life behind to live with strangers in a remote part of the British Isles. Disillusioned with 21st century living, they entered Eden to isolate themselves from the modern world and be given the chance to start again and create a new society from scratch.
Filmed over a year, the programme makers observed from a distance as the cast filmed everything themselves and documented life as it unfolded over 12 months. But were those in Eden able to completely resist the lure of modern living? And without societal constraints was the promise of utopia actually realised, or did life in Eden descend into something that no-one could have predicted? (C4)
