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


Email me at if you are interested, letting me know how many children you have and the age range, and I’ll pass your details on.
