Added to website: 5 February 2016
TV production company looking for people to take part in a new BBC Show to live as Victorians did in 1870 

Are you interested by the Victorian era and would you like to see for yourself how the poor actually lived? Would you like to put yourself to the test to see if you could make ends meet in the 19th Century Britain?

The Company
Wall to Wall Media, the production company behind award-winning programmes such as Who Do You Think You Are? (BBC One), Long Lost Family (ITV), Back In Time For Dinner (BBC Two) and Turn Back Time: The High Street (BBC One), have been commissioned to recreate a Victorian Slum in the hope of exploring the period before the birth of the Welfare State and how the plight of the poor changed our nation for the better.

The Series
We hope to inhabit our authentic late Victorian tenement environment with modern people who will live, work, and survive, in a unique community. They will be responsible for managing their own economy; mastering old trades and selling their wares in order to put food on the table. One family or couple will also be responsible for running the local shop! We would like to find families (10+ - 65+ years) and couples, from a wide range of backgrounds all who will relish the historical experiment of living in a Victorian slum.  

We are looking for people from all over the country - families, couples, siblings and individuals - to experience what it was like in the 1870’s. Filming will take place over a three week period, Easter 2016.

If you are interested in finding our more, please contact Jamie Foster.
