Media Request: Do you have a large family?

I have received a media request for a large family to participate in a radio interview with BBC 5 Live.   They are looking for a family who hasn’t had any media interest already.  If you have eight or more children and are willing to tell them how life is with a bigger than average family, here is more information for you:

Hi there,

I work for BBC Radio 5 Live on the Victoria Derbyshire programme – and we’re looking for a large family to be part of a programme we are looking to put together for some time in the next fortnight.

We’re looking for a family would be willing to speak to us about what it’s like to have a larger family – with lots of kids living under one roof.

The idea would be to send a reporter out to spend a few hours with the family one afternoon – to record some material for the radio to show what life is typically like in a larger household. (Ideally we would want to pre-record something at some point next week)

This would then be aired on the Victoria Derbyshire programme at 10am one morning – when we would also hope to speak to the parents and as many children as is possible live on-air.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Many Thanks,

Claire Hamilton
