BBC’s wanted down under drawing in the crowds

made the move to australia

BBC Wanted down under program brings in the crouds BBC’s wanted down under seems to be drawing in the crowds to getting down under as of late.

I actually remembered that last year when the first series was on the TV our visitor volumes spiked as people jumped onto the web to find a little more information about the show.

This last week its been a little crazy, within two days of the first show airing on TV we’ve been seeing over 2000 unique visitors to the site every day with ‘wanted down under’ and ‘wanted down under BBC’ being the main search terms used to find our site

With this kind of interest I’m still slightly bemused by the fact that the BBC chooses to air the show at such a daft time.   9am in the morning when most people are at work isn’t the best time to show a program like this and I really hope the folks at the BEEB are receiving similar kinda feedback.

If your found us looking for info on the show then make sure you say hi :)

    I look at just about every Wanted Downunder show as I’m the one who wanted but at 70 am way passed the 45yrs old limit. Oz isn’t the land of milk and honey with land and houses for nothing but if its pricess that bother you, head for Darwin or Adelaide regions. Sydney is premium rates and many “traditional” (i.e. ‘potential) properties. Queensland is the really laid back state but distances are great (Brisbane to Cairns is like flying Manchester to Cairo) and my ex g/f lived in Bundaberg which was almost 400km from the airport. My absolute favourites was… Read more »

    the programmes are all about young people and a new life in oz.what about the elderly parents who want to live in oz that want to see there grandchildren grow up and be part of there lives.even if you can support your self they do not want to know you.

    Wanted down under…at the moment we are seeing well out of date programmes..house prices etc are out of date…not to mention at the time these repeats were made the exchange rate was approx $2.50 plus to the £ now its LESS the $2 to the £..this makes it totally pointless watching these old repeats they have no relevance whatsoever to todays market..come on bbc give us value for money..I`m sick to death of all these repeats..

    Hi we were one of the families that appeared in WDU and WDU revisited, it gave us a great insight to what life would be like in Oz, obviously there is no real way to find out until you actually live here in Oz but I have to say that we are loving it over here the kids have a great outdoor life, they have settled really well into school and made lots of friends and have we.
