'The maddest slice of France. Had me in stitches yet moving and touching too - how can one family have caused so much trouble?'(Jeremy Vine)

By courtesy of `The Travel Channel' this under funded, bizarre documentary is a true Comedy of Disasters. "Can it get any worse?" I ask myself through tears of laughter. I think the children would have totally agreed.
Only a British, dogged determination to `finish the trip', a strong survival instinct and a gloriously witty perception of the French psyche see them all safely back home, never, it would seem, to leave these Islands again.
It is a view of a family ripped from their London Suburban life and transported across the World on a limited budget. They spend their time meeting Tribal Chiefs and Bad Hoteliers; eating giant lizards and stale croissants and most impressively of all, return home still one big family.
It was funny and uplifting; you will laugh out loud and be left with a lump in your throat. Most of all, you will wish that this was your family.
