19 Kids and Counting

Britain's biggest family, the Radfords from Lancashire, head down under to meet Australia's largest brood.

19 Kids And Counting will follow the fascinating lives of Britain’s largest family, the Radfords, as they take parenting to a whole new level. The cameras will return to the family home as Lancashire Piemaker Noel, Sue and the kids prepare to welcome a new baby to their ever growing brood and only weeks later set off on their most ambitious family holiday to date, down under.

In Australia, the Radfords meet their southern hemisphere counterparts, Australia’s biggest family, the Bonnells who have 16 kids of their own but enforce much stricter house rules. As Sue and Noel and their intrepid offspring meet another supersized family, it transpires that they have something else in common – with over 30 children between them, both sets of parents were adopted as babies themselves.

As we watch the Radfords explore Australia’s Gold Coast, cooking Kangaroo pies for their hosts, and falling out with each other on the other side of the world, at its heart this documentary is about love and the family bonds that tie us together.
