For the first time (apart from that incident with Harrison Ford), the notoriously private Amish community opens its doors to a group of teenagers in a new six-part series. The access granted by six different Amish communities will be the most television viewers have ever seen of the Amish way of life. No Amish community has ever opened up in this way before, and the Amish families who are taking part in the series hope that it will reveal the advantages of a pure, uncluttered way of life. Eton College student George, Cambridge University undergraduate Siana, spoilt 18-year-old Charlotte, media studies student Jordan and 17-year-olds Hannah, a Christian, and James, who lives in a London hostel, join Amish communities for six weeks to learn about their way of life.
