TELEVISION producers are hunting out a working class family in London’s East End.

They’re offering the bait of an all-expenses paid weekend family reunion for a documentary programme.

Each episode in the BBC series follows a different large extended family as they come together for a reunion.

But they’re short of a good, working class family from an inner city area like Tower Hamlets.

So telly scouts’ are appealing for an East End family to take part.

Producers for the independent Blast Films production company are currently filming a family from the South Coast, one from Bristol and another from Liverpool.

“But our search continues for a big East End family,” explained a company spokesman.

“We’re looking for a family who are proud of their roots, but for whatever reason find it difficult to sort out gathering altogether in the same place at the same time.

“We’re offering the family a chance to discover their collective history and renew distant relationships.”

The family would take part in an activities weekend to rediscover relationships, memories and family bonds, take part in genealogy workshops and meet up with relatives who may only be distant memories.

The producers are asking anyone wanting to get involved to call them on 020-7267 4260, or email celebration@blastfilms.co.uk
