The story covers the Channel Four producers' search for an "exhibitionist" Jewish family "who have room for a few more round the Friday night dinner table." The "few more" means up to 28 cameras recording every kvetch-and-kvell around the clock for the award-nominated series, "The Family."
Channel Four's call for Jewish families to apply describes the programme as "a celebration of family life that reflects the identity and diversity of contemporary Britain."Previously spotlighted were British and Anglo-Indian families. The project team is looking in Manchester for a family with three or more teenage children for the eight-week filming session.
The cameras will record family meals, homework, marriages, school, work and religion and more.
It might take some time, say the producers, to find a suitable family willing to live in front of the intrusive cameras. No filming start date has been set.
It will be interesting information to add to the family archives!
