Scarlett Moffatt and her family move to remote Namibian village… taking with them their house and everything they own.

In a ground-breaking new series, The British Tribe Next Door, (4 x 60), Scarlett Moffatt and her 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: as they take with them every modern convenience you could think of: from running water, electricity and iPhones, to hair straighteners, frozen ready-meals and of course, the all-important family television.

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