Leaving Amish Paradise

Leaving Amish Paradise

Available on BBC Select, Prime Video
What happens when you take a culture that’s shunned the modern world and force it to live in the 21st century? The Amish travel by horse and buggy and dress as their forebears did when they landed in America 300 years ago. Countless rules prevent them from using electric lights, radio, TV and mobile phones. This documentary follows two Amish families struggling to get to grips with modernity.
