Call for Participants – BBC “Victorian Slums” Filming, 31st March, London

From the makers of Back in Time for Dinner and Who Do You Think You Are? comes a new landmark BBC Living History series which will recreate the Victorian slums in the East End of London in the hope of exploring the period before the birth of the Welfare State.

On Thursday 31st March over a period of a couple of hours, we will be filming a market scene in Stratford, London and are looking for members of the public (especially those with a tie to the East End of London) to come down and take part.

We have families who will be living in the Victorian slum for a period of 3 weeks and selling goods which they have made in the slum to members of the public. You will be able to purchase Victorian products including soaps, candles, wood-crafted items, and clothes.

If you would like more information, the locations, and timings please e-mail or call 07958 362 902 / 0203 301 7444

All children under 18 will need a parent or guardian to be present.

This sequence will be filmed, so all people taking part will be asked to sign a contributor release form on location stating that you are happy to feature within the programme.
