And finally, I was contacted this week by a casting producer looking for households and flat sharers for a primetime Channel 4 production to take part in a brand new social experiment. The aim is to look at the possessions that households accumulate and the importance (if any) of their belongings. The social experiment will run over a 30 day period and Channel 4 are looking for those with a genuine interest in seeing how well they cope with going back to basics.
It sounds very interesting, I think.
Here's the contact information below if you fancy it.
