Episode Guide

Episode 6

Series 1 · Episode 6

As summer draws to an end for the Turnbull family Richard tours the olive groves in preparation for the olive harvest in November. They’re relying on a bumper harvest this year to make up for the terrible one they had the year before. The oil from the harvest makes up a big chunk of their yearly income so a good crop is vital. Up at the farmhouse Sarah has a domestic crisis when the water runs out and Richard has to venture down to the stream, which provides the farm’s water, to sort out the problem. Richard DJ’s at a top wedding and relives his days as a Jimmy Savile impersonator back in Yorkshire. He tries to clinch his biggest property deal of the summer and ends up taking part in the local Carnival parade, dressed as a mediaeval accountant. All this plus the usual mix of stunning scenery, sunshine, and Richard and Sarah’s unique take on living the dream life in Italy.
