Posted on June 3, 2010 at 23:26 6 Comments

Don't know if anyone will actually be reading this as the series is not currently on tv but just wanted to comment on some views made with regard to the people that actually take part in this programme.


Our family was fortunate enough to be selected to take part in series 5 of the the programme (it should be on screen in Jan/Feb 2011).


I just wanted to let you know that certainly from our point of view we were not in it for a free trip and if…

Hi Tracy, how are you and yours?, how are your plans going? I'm really excited I've had an email back from WDU with the form for me to fill in. I took your advice and filled it in with little jokes here and there to try and portray my personality so hopefully they will like it and get back to us!! They said the next part would be a phone call then I'm not sure if this means your in or not?? but then they said they come and film for two days... surely this would mean your in!!! Haaaa have you listened to me I'm getting soooo carried away!!! I just hope they ring!!! I can't think of anything else!!!

What month did you go to NZ with them? Did it happen really fast?? OMG here I go again!!!

I'll leave you be now.....hope you are well and your dreams are all coming true!!

 

Take care

 

Love me xx

Hi Tracy, I've just watched the episode of you and your family on WDU it was nice to put a face to your name and see your lovely family :)

So where are you?...have you got there yet? I know you where hoping to get there before Christmas!! Hows things on the family front? Our families just don't even want to discuss it!! they think if they dont talk about it we might forget about it and it will all go away!!

I rang BBC Bristol again this week and I actually got through to someone and left my details so you never know?!?!

We are just waiting for my husband to do his skills assessment then we can carry on with the rest of the visa application. You seem to have sorted yours really fast, from filming the programme last year to being close if not emigrating now, how did you manage that?!

Well I hope things are going well for you and your family...where ever you are!!

Take care

Speak soon ,

Hi Tracy thanks for your reply it was full of great tips!
I wondered if I could trouble you to answer a few more questions....
I have sent a number of emails to two different addresses could you tell me if you used either 'helen.cawley@bbc.co.uk' or 'wanteddownunder@bbc.co.uk'? I found both in different blogs and not sure if either are legitimate.
Had you started your visa application before you applied? If so did you tell them in your initial email? What did you write in the email to get a response? I have written several times but never even had a reply let alone a form to fill!!
Sorry to ask so many questions but I dont know if we're just not what they are looking for or I'm sending them to the wrong address its just so frustrating!
Did you say your episode will be on in Jan? I cant wait to see it!!
We have friends who emigrated to Oz at Easter and they love it they have settled really well, they are in rented accommodation, hubby has found work and kids all in school. No turning back for them!
I bet your so excited to be going and staring a new life.
We wish you all the luck in the world!
Take care and please keep in touch
Best wishes

Hi Tracy its great to hear from someone who has actually got through to take part and hear what it is really like!!
My husband and I together with our children would love to migrate to Australia and have started filling in the online visa application, but with this being so expensive and just the economic climate in this county at the moment it is hard to save to go on holiday to Oz to see if we would like it.
We dont know weather to just go for it without visiting the country or use money that would go towards our migration and see what were going to!!
We have tried to get on "wanted down under" and have sent them a number of emails, but to no avail...do you have any tips??
Thanks again for a true insight to the programe.

Kind Regards

Lisa cx
