BBC looking for traditional Indian family

BBC: Do you believe in instilling good old-fashioned values, discipline and boundaries in your children? Can you give two British teenagers the chance to have some much-needed structure in their lives? If so, the British Broadcasting Corporation is looking for you to take part in its long-running series on parenting.

In each one-hour programme, two British teenagers are sent to live with a family abroad, to experience life in their country under their rules.

In the last series, the BBC sent mismanaged teenagers from the UK to live with families all over the world, from Jamaica to India, Alabama to South Africa.

In this series, BBC wants to send two British teenagers to India to sample a disciplined, yet loving upbringing. It is looking to represent an inspirational Indian family (with their own teenagers) who are proud of their strong parenting and family values and who would be willing to accommodate two British teenagers for one week and instil in them the values and morality they demand of their own children.

The British teens will be expected to attend school, complete homework, help with household chores - whatever is normal for the host family; they will not be guests in the house but new members of the family.

If you are proud of your strong parenting and values and interested in this project, drop a line for more information to or call Kerry on +442074247741.
