Money where your mouth is.
I mean how hard can it be? Up rooting the family and starting again! After all its not the first time I have moved countries, but it is with kids. I have watched all those "A life in country/sea/Spain/France" shows and people did it with no problems at all. And after all I am heading back to family and old friends so it should be easy.
Which is exactly the same thing that happened over a decade ago when I moved to the UK. I had gone from being and Entertainment producer to finding myself asking who are Ant & Dec and Davina McCall not to mention finding it hard to understand what northern presenters were saying.
Things have changed, my old researcher/friend is now the 'Weather girl', reality contestants 'present' better than the host and international reality shows flood the airwaves. The other thing I have noticed in the short 3 weeks I have been back, is that Australian commissioners have joined their UK counterparts in commissioning shows at the 12th hour and jobs need filling URGENTLY or tomorrow.
Which really sucks if you have a family or life.
I am also being told that there has been a flood of Brits working on the BIG glossy floor shows and the big 4 have all the work. So its seems that on both sides of the globe telly types are the same.
