Harvey and John on t'telly

From here...


To here...

Harvey and John, my friends who left Leeds to move to the Isle of Harris for a different kind of life are on television tomorrow (Wednesday) night - UK television programme Build a New Life in the Country on Channel 5 at 8 p.m., repeated on Thursday at 8 p.m. on Fiver. I've just watched the programme on http://demand.five.tv/Series.aspx?seriesBaseName=BuildANewLifeInTheCountry
and even without knowing Harvey and John I think I would have found it riveting to watch them working ro restore the buildings and prepare to open a campsite business on thirteen acres of land through sheer determination and on a tiny budget all done with their usual wit and good humour. For those of you not in the UK you can see the programme on the link above.

Just watched the program. Thought it was great. What is the website name?

It was a great programme - just hope they got their de-crofting eventually, they certainly deserve to make a success of it.

Without a doubt it has been the most charming and appealing of this series. I liked both the characters and I absolutely adore the location. Sandra if you are a friend of theirs give me the website address and contact details either publicly on here are privately because I'm very sure I could help them with the website to get more customers. This is not primarily some moneymaking approach it is a genuine wish to help. I have holiday accommodation in Whitby and have studied search engine optimisation which gets you the business. I'd love to help the two guys it was a great program. Alan from Bradford... unfortunately

Hi, sorry to be repeating the others' comments, but do they have a website, and could you possibly send me the link to it? I'd love to go and stay, but have spent a good while surfing looking for their site but can't find it :-(
Thanks
