Are you and your family ready to step back in time?
If you and your family would like to tread in your ancestors’ footsteps in a unique living history experience, then you may have a chance of appearing in BBC ONE’s hit living history series TURN BACK TIME.
The new show will focus on family history. This year the producers are looking at family life through the ages and they are on the hunt for families to travel through time and experience a century of change first hand.
They’ll take a street of houses back to 1901 and over the course of several weeks fast forward the families through the 20th century. In an exciting new twist, some of the families’ journey will even be based on their own family history!
Over the course of the century, the street’s community will evolve and reflect change in British society – so as well as two parent families the producers would love to hear from single parent families and anyone whose family migrated to the UK in the post-war years.
The deadline for families applying to take part in show is Friday 13th January 2012. They only need one family so the sooner you apply the better your chances will be.
You are however, warned against doing any additional research into your family history - it’s helpful if you don’t know too much in advance. Filming will be in Spring 2012.
