      I wondered if anyone might be able to help with a story that I'm after for a
      television history documentary. We are always looking for strong characters
      who have lived interesting lives and can tell a story well.

      We specialise in social history programmes based on life stories and archive
      film and have made a number of high profile, award-winning series. Most
      recently there was MARRIED LOVE (2002 for Channel 4, which won a Royal
      Television Society Award), SOME LIKED IT HOT (2001 for ITV, which documented
      the history of the British on holiday), GREEN AND PLEASANT LAND (1999, a
      major series C4 looking at country life in Britain) and VETERANS:THE LAST
      SURVIVORS OF THE GREAT WAR (this was a BBC1 series marking the eightieth
      anniversary of the end of the First World War using the memories of the last
      soldiers alive). We are currently making a six part television series in the
      UK with The British Empire and Commonwealth Museum, to be shown on
      television early next year.

      Provisionally titled, A JOURNEY ACROSS THE SEA, the programmes will explore
      the influence that the British Empire and Commonwealth has had on residents
      of the South West of England throughout the 20th Century. Four of the
      programmes will look at immigration to the region, and two will focus on
      emigration. Perhaps you emigrated from the South West of England as a
      Canadian war bride? Or maybe you emigrated to the South West of England from
      Canada? Maybe you have a story completely separate to those but that we
      might find of interest? At this stage we do not know whether our budget will
      stretch to a trip overseas to film potential interviewees, so if anyone is
      actually returning to, or now based in, the UK we would be especially
      interested. Whether you are returning or not though, the programmes will
      rely on the personal memories of people, and therefore I am very keen to
      talk to or hear from, as many people as possible in the course of my
      research. We are wanting to hear these stories to add to our own general
      research as well as to find potential interviewees so PLEASE GET IN TOUCH!

      Best Wishes,
      Clair Titley
