Request for participants in a Channel 4 documentary


My name is Victoria Ray and I am a Researcher at a TV production company called Twenty Twenty Television. I am working on a new series for Channel 4 about families taking gap years and wondered if you may be able to help me?

At the moment, I’m trying to find interesting and outgoing families who would potentially make good subjects to base our series on. I am particularly keen to find a family whose gap year has a purpose other than the traditional travelling route. For example, working on a particular volunteer project, sailing, or going somewhere really remote. The idea is for each episode to follow one family’s gap year in a similar style to the series No Going Back.

Twenty Twenty Television is an established independent production company that has won a number of awards for programmes such as The Choir, That’ll Teach Them, Brat Camp and Lads’ Army. If you would like more information about Twenty Twenty and our award-winning programmes, please take a look at our website  .  I am hoping you might know of some families who are planning on taking the children out of school and would therefore require home schooling. The children could be any age between 5 and 16 years ideally.

Potential families could be departing any time between now and Spring 2009 but we would like to make contact, through you, as soon as possible. Please don¹t hesitate to get in touch either at this email or on 020 7284 2020 if you have any questions for me or would like more information.

Thanks very much for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
