haven't watched this show in ages had forgotton how they made it confrontational

PootyApplewater Sun 24-Aug-08 20:06:12

megcleary Sun 24-Aug-08 20:07:38

The family with 8 children, they were on another programme a few years ago with Nadia swhalia(sp) It was on BBC1 in the morning.

PootyApplewater Sun 24-Aug-08 20:09:12

they smack their children, so obviously that will be a contentious issue.

PootyApplewater Sun 24-Aug-08 20:10:24

sorry, x post with octavia - the family with the little boys smack their children, not the larger family.

megcleary Sun 24-Aug-08 20:13:30

ye'd need a fierce amount of arms to smack eight!

PootyApplewater Sun 24-Aug-08 20:13:52

what was the BBC programme about, octavia?

PootyApplewater Sun 24-Aug-08 20:16:06

four dogs and eight children makes for a very busy household. grin

octavia Sun 24-Aug-08 20:18:46

It was a lifestyle swap,this family swapped with another family who were better off.They swapped houses,jobs, schools and lived each others lives with their own families iyswim.

PootyApplewater Sun 24-Aug-08 20:20:26

ah right - they're old hands at this fly-on-the-wall tv lark then. grin

octavia Sun 24-Aug-08 20:24:31

seems so ! Its quite interesting to see how they have changed.

megcleary Sun 24-Aug-08 20:27:01

Octavia whats changed about them?

slavemum Sun 24-Aug-08 20:32:13

don't really understand hwo people could go on programmes like this. Of course my family isn't perfect and we have our bad points but don't need someone else coming into my house and pointing them out to the nation on tv.
maybe very hypocritical as love watching this....blush

For those wondering, BBC programme was Family Xchange, Season 1.

PootyApplewater Sun 24-Aug-08 20:38:30

megcleary Sun 24-Aug-08 20:40:38

expatinscotland Sun 24-Aug-08 20:40:59

PootyApplewater Sun 24-Aug-08 20:42:31

good for her, she's taken the boys out for tea.

lilymolly Sun 24-Aug-08 20:42:54

ChairmanMiao Sun 24-Aug-08 20:44:46

I saw that, octavia and nannynick!

Am not really watching wife swap now, however, as I have an internet to read.
