>Hi Everyone
>I work for a small television production company called Lambent 
>Productions. We are based in Brighton and have a long history of 
>working in educational programming. We pride ourselves on our honest 
>and trustworthy reputation. Our website is 
>should you want to take a look at our recent productions.
>BBC 2 is looking to run an education season and have asked us to 
>look into producing a documentary on home schooling. (Why are more 
>and more parents choosing this option, what range of people opt for 
>it, what it involves and what impact it has on the learning and 
>wellbeing of young people.)
>I am trying therefore to find some engaging families to contribute. 
>I've already filmed with a few, but am looking for a family that 
>represents the group of people who choose to live out of the 
>mainstream, not just in education. I am therefore keen to meet 
>people that are living in sustainable communities, eco-villages or 
>independently away fromt hustle and bustle of modern life.
>I would need to spend a few hours talking and filming with you next 
>week. (It would be a very small scale and discrete operation- i.e. 
>me and a camera!) I'm very nice I promise...and I am seriously keen 
>to emphasise that we as a company take the welfare of our 
>contributors very seriously. We don't mispresent or mistreat anyone 
>we work with. Our work relies on gaining access with sensitive 
>organisations and sustaining a relationship of trust, so though 
>there may be scepticism amongst many towards the 'media' I would 
>like to think we are very different to those that have built this reputation.
>If you think you fit the bill, or know somebody you think I should 
>approach, I can be contacted anytime on 07737 462496 or by email.
>Many thanks,
>I hope you can help
>All the best
