Smile English Pen Pals Who Have Found Love Wanted.

I saw this on the PrisonPenPals site and thought I'd post incase anyone is interested.

ENGLISH PEN PALS WHO HAVE FOUND LOVE WANTED.
Have you had success finding love through Prison PenPals? Are you dating someone on the inside? If so we would love to hear from you for a new ITV show which celebrates love defying all odds. We are interested in all stories, from any part of the country, related to unconventional love. Please email all enquiries to: unlikely.lovers@turnontv.co.uk. Or telephone Katy Pearcey: 0161 2477822


Here is another one:

SEEKING ENGLISH PEN PALS - BBC TV documentary is looking for people willing to talk about their experiences of writing to prisoners. Do you have a story to tell? Have you found a life partner through a pen pals service? What does it mean to you to be able to bring some sunshine into a prisoner's day? Why did you decide to do it? Would you recommend it to others? Whatever your experience, I would love to hear from you. Ideally you are based in the West Midlands - Birmingham and the Black Country, Warwickshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire and Staffordshire - but we can look further afield. I look forward to hearing from you. Please contact me: rachel.macmanus@bbc.co.uk with "Prison Pen Pals Response" in the subject box. Many thanks.

Thanks, I've been contacted by a few people in the past but they never seem to be genuine enough. Perhaps I'll try these because I think we all need to get our stories out, as long as the production company doesn't give us the run around, that is!!!

Rose, I've emailed the BBC woman, so I'll see if she replies, although I don't live in the area of England she stated. Let me know how you get on too.

I'm out of the area, too, but I've still emailed her. I'll let you know if anything happens. I also emailed the other one, so it will be interesting to see if anything comes of either.

I've heard back from Katy Peacey, she seems quite keen, and sympathetic. Not heard anything from the Beeb, though. I'll let you know how it all progresses.

I had a 'screen test' this afternoon for the ITV production. I'll let you know if anything more comes of it.

Heard from the Beeb today, it's only an 8 minute slot they have and they've got enough from the West Midlands area to more than fill that. Still, it was worth a try.
