Is every one moving to the NSW regional city of Orange? We’ve lost count of the number of episodes of Escape From The City set in the region, but there’s been a few. The audience was 418,000 after 416,000 a week ago. An interesting footnote at the end of last night’s episode was the Hatchs, after buying a property, found the city too cold, and later moved to the NSW north coast.
