Parents and Grand Parents Wanted for Film

Dear Terry/Gerald

I work for a small independent tv production company ( and we’ve just been commissioned by Channel Five to produce a series about Pets for pre-school children.  We’re looking for some grandparents (or parents!) who keep budgerigars and have grandchildren/children aged between 3 and 7 and would be happy to be filmed during the summer holidays.  We’d like to show how the birds are looked after, what they eat and how they can be handled etc.

I was wondering if you’d be able to send out a message to your members, to see if there’s anyone who might be interested in taking part.  We’re hoping to film within about an hour of London.

If you require any further details do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks in advance for your assistance,


Sarah McDonnell
Head of Production
