The British Tribe Next Door

Scarlett Moffatt and her family move to remote Namibian village… and take their house with them.

In a ground-breaking new series, The British Tribe Next Door (w/t), 4 x 60’, Scarlett and the rest of the Moffatt family will spend four weeks with the Himba tribe in a remote Namibian tribal village.

But unlike most adventurers, they won’t be saying goodbye to the comforts of their County Durham home, because they’re taking it with them, complete with all mod cons, running water, electricity, and all their possessions around them – from hair straighteners to metal detectors, iPhones to frozen ready-meals, and of course, the all-important family television.

The community the Moffatts will be joining is a small village of semi-nomadic Himba cattle-herders, who live largely traditional lives.

“For the first time in human history, British suburbia and Himba tribal life will co-exist side-by-side.

Scarlett and the Himba are the perfect foils, both hospitable, curious, friendly … and sharing wicked senses of humour.”
