Life after 70
It was good to speak with you a little earlier. As I mentioned on the phone my name is Jacci and I’m a documentary producer working with a television production company called ‘Tuesdays Child’ where we’re very excited to be developing a series for Channel 5 which celebrates the lives and achievements of those aged 70 and over.
We’re looking for a diverse range of inspirational, positive, and fun-living contributors from across the UK aged from 70 upwards who are living life to its fullest. We’re keen to find seniors with interesting or challenging hobbies.
By telling the stories of each of our contributors we aim to highlight issues connected to ageing and challenge the many stereotypes that exist about the lives of the over 70s.
We’d love to find someone involved in beekeeping who can shine a light on a fascinating activity which so crucial to our biodiversity.
What we’re looking for is contributors who are good storytellers and who stand out in the community as ‘unusual or remarkable’ in some way i.e.: either because of some project they’re involved with, something they’ve achieved in the past or
something they’re planning in the near future.
It’s hard to know what this might look like in the world of beekeeping, but you will no doubt have some ideas.
As a company Tuesday’s Child has a well established track record of working with
organisations on a wide range of output, some of which have gone on to become returning series. We are particularly keen to hear from members of under-represented groups around the UK. I look forward to hearing from you.
Factual, Tuesday’s Child Wales
