As a blogger you never know what might turn up in your comments or email inbox!
I’ve been asked nicely (should have asked for cash, lol) if I will pass on an ad to you from the makers of Victorian Farm, and as I have enormous respect for the original programme – I am posting it here.
It’s a chance for regular families to take part in a new programme called ‘Escape In Time’, who will be living and working on the same farm from the original series.
Not only am I glad the farm is coming back on TV, I’d love a go at this myself! Let me know if any of you are going to try out for it
PASSIONATE ABOUT RE-LEARNING OLD SKILLS?
WANT TO LEARN TO BE SELF SUFFICIENT?
…WHY NOT SPEND A WEEK ON A VICTORIAN FARM?
We are looking for people for a unique opportunity to escape the modern world and spend a week on the farm featured in the BBC2 series ‘Victorian Farm’.
The team behind the original series are now looking for everyday families to take part in a new BBC2 series called ‘Escape in Time’. The families will have the chance to live on the original Victorian Farm estate for one week, rediscovering the practical skills and self-sufficiency that our grandparents had, but which we have lost, whilst competing against each other mastering tasks and crafts from the Victorian age.
It’s an unparalleled opportunity to work together as a family and enjoy the pleasure of learning to plough fields, weave baskets, make bread, sheer sheep, brew beer and many other skills.
If you think you might be interested, and you and your family (minimum of two people) can be available for one week’s filming in September 2009, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact telephone number, for more information.
