BBC Television Opportunity
(Posted with permission from James)
The hugely successful BBC series â€˜Who Rules The Roost?â€™ gives working mums and dads the opportunity to take on the role of stay-at-home parent. If mum feels guilty about not being home in time for tea, or dad works late and doesnâ€™t get to read the bedtime stories, then this is their chance to discover whether the grass really is greener for parents that are able to do so.
For many working parents, the obligations and hectic schedules of demanding careers can leave few opportunities to enjoy the perks of parenting. Collecting the children from school, a trip to the park, or an hour spent helping with homework can be a rare treat rather than the norm. It is little wonder that many parents worry they might be missing out.
Few working parents have the opportunity to test the waters before deciding whether to put their career on hold and focus on full time parenting, but the BBC is giving some parents this potentially life changing opportunity.
Mum and dad will each in turn take two weeks off work to experience the realities of stay-at-home parenthood. At the end, of this period of reflection, they will decide which lifestyle suits them best.
We are looking for busy working parents from all over the country who are involved in a wide range of careers and working patterns. We are also keen to feature a family where one or both parents have a keen interest in a demanding sport.
Both parents should work full time and have at least two young children.
The series will be transmitted in autumn 2005 and filming will take place during the summer holidays.
