The Secret Life of 4&5 Year Olds – Outlook Web App, light version

Hi there,

I hope you are well and don’t mind me getting in touch. I’m an Assistant Producer at RDF Television – the makers of Channel 4’s ‘The Secret Life of 4&5 Year Olds’.

We are currently casting for the next series and looking for children in the Bristol area to take part. I wondered if any of your staff or members might be interested in applying for their children? Or if any of your younger patrons or their siblings would be suitable?

If you’re not familiar with the show, this exciting television series will follow four and five year olds as they take their first steps towards independence and embark on the new challenges of going to school. The series will follow their development from the moment they meet for the first time, through the forming of friendships to learning social rituals and friendly competition. The entire process will be observed and monitored by leading scientists and child psychologists who will provide occasional comment on the children’s stages of development.

Filming will take place in North London over the Summer holidays. Chosen children will be asked to film for 1-2 weeks during a six week period, and the days are led by two highly trained teachers. We cover the cost of travel and accommodation for all children selected to take part in the series, and they are filmed for no more than 5 hours per day.

I would be most grateful if you could please forward news of this opportunity to any of your visitors or staff. I have attached a flyer to this email so you can share on any noticeboards or social media you have but if parents would like to apply they can do so here: 

Do let me know if you need me to send some flyers in the post, or indeed if you would like to discuss further.

We are holding auditions at the beginning of June and would love to get some children from the Bristol area involved, so I really appreciate any help you can offer.

Kind regards,
