BBC TV are looking for a role model Dutch family

28th July 2010, Comments 0 comments

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 and second series, the BBC is looking for role model families to take part in a third 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 The Netherlands.

We are looking for a traditional, conservative Dutch family (with children aged 13-18) 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 and church, to complete homework and help with household chores and/or the family business - they will not be guests in the house but new members of the family.  They will be expected to engage in volunteer and community activities during their stay.  Host families will be paid 1000 USD to cover expenses during the teens stay.  The production team will work closely with host family and host school to make the arrangements for the week’s filming.

Twenty Twenty Television is one of the UK’s leading independent production companies with a reputation for producing intelligent and award-winning programmes.

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 or call Anna Brent in London on 0044 207 284 2020 and we will call you straight back.
