The team that brought you the BAFTA award-winning series One Born Every Minute and 24 Hours in A&E on Channel 4 is looking to speak to expectant parents and step-families.

The Garden Productions is producing a seven part documentary series about love and relationships to be broadcast in 2012 on Channel 4.

“This intelligent and sensitive series will reflect relationships throughout a lifetime – from first kiss to final farewell and everything else in between,” said Emma Tutty of The Garden Productions. “Across the generations, we will explore what it really means to be in love.”

For the episode about bringing home a first baby, the team is particularly interested in speaking to couples expecting their first baby together and are due to give birth between September and December 2011, about their views on love as they prepare for parenthood.

If you’ve been trying for a baby for a while or your pregnancy was a surprise and your lifestyle has suddenly changed because of it, they would like to hear from you.

The documentary series will reflect on the experiences of people from different walks of life and how love has been significant in their lives. To explore the universal joys of love, more than the setbacks, The Garden Productions are looking to talk to couples about their experiences of love.

For another film examining step-families, The Garden Productions would like to speak to families with teenagers who are working through the complications of merging households. This will look at how children are coping with having a new ‘parent’ figure in the home and what parents are doing differently in their relationship the second time around.

If you are a couple expecting a first baby or you are part of a step-family, the production team would love to hear from you.

Please email or call The Garden on 020 3465 9060 to find out more. Calling does not oblige you to take part in the series.
