New series 1/7. Is it possible to run an eco-friendly household, be self-sufficient in energy and food, but still keep all the mod cons? Ex-army engineer Dick Strawbridge and his family are taking on the challenge with a crumbling Cornish farmhouse that has no electricity or plumbing. From now on life is all about home-grown veggies, chicken coops, compost loos and solar power - but, as Dick explains, their green dream could turn into a nightmare: "We're definitely not eco-warriors. We aren't prepared to give up our creature comforts for long."
