Television company seeks TV restoration prog proposal help

From the Federation of Family History Societies (


Does someone you know have a treasured item that has fallen into disrepair? Perhaps something that has been sat in the garage or loft for years and no longer works? Would you like to surprise them by secretly restoring it?

TV company Boundless Productions (makers of Grand Designs and Great British Railway Journeys) is looking for people who have something of great personal importance they’d like to restore as part of a prospective new series for the BBC.

This could be something that’s special to you that you’d love to be restored or an object you’d like to restore as a surprise for the owner.

This is a great opportunity for someone to follow the restoration process of an item special to their family and discover how this item links to the wider history of their local area and Britain as a whole.

If you are interested please get in touch. Email: Therestorers @ or check out the BBC website at: BBC ad:

NB: This states "prospective new series" - so sounds like something under development as opposed to an actual commission as yet)
