BBC looking for contributors for a film about Christmas on the Home Front

The BBC's weekday series The One Show is looking for contributors who experienced Christmas on the Home Front, especially those who were Evacuees between 1939 and 1945. We are making a short insert film about how Christmas was celebrated during these war years and we are looking for contributors who can explain their experiences to our presenter, talking about the food, decorations and atmosphere over the festive period. Ideally we are looking for people who are comfortable enough to talk on camera.

It would be very useful to make contact with any interested parties as soon as was possible.
Unfortunately we have a very fast-turnaround schedule and would be requiring to film contributors on one of the days in the week beginning Monday 21st August in the London region.
For further information I can be contacted on my direct line; tel: 0117 9742352 or by email: marc.barrett1@bbc.co.uk .
Thank you for your time and I look forward to any enquiries.
Best wishes,

Marc Barrett, Researcher - The One Show, BBC Bristol

Seems like an interesting project! I passed on details of a couple of people I know who would have been interested.

However, it appears the programme makers really require interviewees to be within easy reach of London or the Home Counties (where the programme researchers are based). The ones I know who could have assisted with the project live some distance from London.
