Our Yorkshire Farm set for name change as Amanda Owen show gets global launch

Our Yorkshire Farm is going through a major change after the Channel 5 show was sold to international territories.

The show, which follows shepherdess Amanda Owen, 47, and her family, will be available to watch in 25 territories around the world.

But for Amanda fans around the world excited to finally watch the show, they'll have to keep their eyes peeled as it won't be known as Our Yorkshire Farm.

Instead, for its global release, it has been renamed to My Big Family Farm – which also makes sense, considering Amanda and husband Clive have nine children.

The show, which launched on Channel 5 in 2018, was bought by distributor Cineflix Rights, and will air on CBC in Canada, Discovery Networks in New Zealand and Nine Network in Australia.

For now, only the first two seasons will be available, but that's still plenty of viewing pleasure for fans wanting to get an insight into British farm life.

Richard Life, head of acquisitions for Cineflix Rights, told Television Business International: "We are absolutely thrilled to be building on Channel 5's success in the UK with the series and growing My Big Family Farm into a global hit.

"The show is a quintessentially lovely mix of engaging family characters, beautiful landscapes, and nature battling the elements which is proving irresistible to buyers from a varied range of countries all looking for escapist content."

Amanda and Clive first got a taste of the spotlight when they appeared on the Adrian Edmondson ITV show The Dales, which aired in 2011.

Back then, Amanda and Clive had five children, but they've since welcomed four more.

The family later appeared in a 2015 episode of New Lives in the Wild UK, also on Channel 5, which led to their own show.

Amanda had also turned her hand to writing, as she has written five books, including The Yorkshire Shepherdess and Tales From the Farm.

And her show isn't the only one to be renamed when broadcast to an international audience.

The Great British Bake Off is known as The Great British Baking Show in the US and Canada – though that's because "Bake-Off" is a trademark owned by food brand Pillsbury.
