BBC TV IS LOOKING FOR A ROLE MODEL FAMILY IN SINGAPORE Do you believe in instilling good old-fashioned values, discipline and boundaries in your children? Can you give two British teenagers the chance to have some much-needed structure in their lives?  Following the huge success of the first series, the BBC are looking for role model families to take part in a second series of factual entertainment programmes on parenting. In each one-hour programme, two British teenagers will be sent to live with a family abroad, to experience life in their country under their rules. In the last series, the BBC sent overindulged teenagers from the UK to live with families over the world, from Jamaica to India, Alabama to South Africa. In this series we want to send two British teenagers to Singapore.  We are looking for a traditional, conservative Singaporean family (with children of their own aged 13-17) who are proud of their strong parenting and family values and who would be willing to accommodate two British teenagers for one week and instil in them the values and morality they demand of their own children.  The British teens will be expected to attend school, church, complete homework and help with household chores; they will not be guests in the house but new members of the family. The whole week will be filmed by a small BBC team.  We appreciate that space may be an issue and the teens may not have their own guest rooms. We’re very happy to explore practical solutions to this such as the possibly of sharing with host children and/or constructing makeshift sleeping areas in the living space.  All expenses will be paid. Twenty Twenty Television is one of the UK’s leading independent production companies with a reputation for producing intelligent and award-winning programmes. www.twentytwenty.tv   If you are proud of your strong parenting and family values then please get in touch with us for more information about the series. Email a brief description of your family and all your contact information to helencrampton@twentytwenty.tv or call Helen Crampton in London on +44 (0)207 284 2020 and we will call you straight back Helen Helen has written to VolunteerSingapore, requesting that we post the above here to help them with their search. We wish to follow up on this and therefore hope that you will email us if you have been shortlisted and/or inform us of any outcome. Thank You and good luck!
