Relax and enjoy two times per week!
28 November 2010 | by richard-plessSee all my reviews

As at November 28, 2010. Channel 7 (2) airs Escape To The Country twice per week.

8.30pm Friday night, and 8.30pm Sunday night.

Enjoy the breathtaking countryside twice as often now!

One of the all time great English lifestyle shows, Escape To The Country allows to viewer to relax and unwind whilst being transported to tiny villages, to remote Welsh landscapes, to dramatic coastal retreats....all at the end of your remote control.

Potential tree changers (PTC), and sea changers (PSC)enlist the help of the host to seek their ideal property.

In general, however, potential is more akin to tyre kicking.

No matter! It is not really the PTC's and PSC's that we are interested in....it is the quintessential English garden, or the 500 year old cottage, or the thought of finding the mythical "Dibley" or "Studley Constable" that draws the viewer.
