  • News

 

Kate Humble Channel 5 has ordered two series presented by Kate Humble – a new show based around life on her Wye Valley farm and a return of A Country Life for Half the Price. 


Both shows come from Glasgow-based Raise the Roof Productions and Motion Content Group. 
 

Kate Humble: My Little Farm, to be delivered as a 4 x 60, will explore the presenter’s self-sufficient daily life on a 4-acre smallholding near Monmouth as well as a larger 117-acre site nearby. 
 

The second series of A Country Life for Half the Price will comprise 8 x 60 episodes plus 4 x 60 re-visits. The show sees Humble help families escape the rat race and transform their lives in a new rural setting. 
 

Humble said; “Not only am I delighted to continue to help people looking for their dream lives in the country, I will now be able to share my knowledge from the last 10 years since I’ve owned my own little farm. I’ve learned so much, met wonderful people who have inspired me and done things I never dreamed I’d be able to do.  Both these series will feature many inspiring people (as well as the joys and challenges of country life), which I hope will equally inspire and delight viewers.”
 

Emma Westcott, commissioning editor, Channel 5 said "We are pleased to welcome Kate back to Channel 5 and have her open the doors to her little farm once again for our audiences to enjoy a slice of the good life. Also to have her return for 'A Country Life' and help those looking for a better sort of life to achieve their dreams."  
 

The executive producers for Raise the Roof Productions are Andrew Jackson and Jo Scott and the executive producer for Motion Content Group is Melanie Darlaston.
