TV and magazine opportunity

Genes Advisor 10 Mar 2015 15:37

We’re looking for people who have been reunited with long lost relatives through research undertaken on our sites (Genes Reunited, Findmypast, the British Newspaper Archive) to feature in a primetime BBC TV program and (separately) an article for a leading women’s lifestyle magazine.

For the magazine we are looking for a woman aged 35 to 70 (UK based) who has met up with a long lost relative abroad or in the UK within the last few years. The piece will involve a phone interview, as well as a photo shoot in London in the next few weeks or so. The magazine will cover travel expenses and provide hair styling, make up, wardrobe and lunch.

For the BBC TV show we are looking for someone who has found a long lost relative through research on our site. They, and preferably their relative, will be available for filming on the 18th May.
