from Jon Massey, Twofour Productions, Plymouth

Sir; Are any of your readers about to up sticks, pack in their job, and do what they’ve always wanted to do? If so, the makers of a new TV series would like to hear from them.

Twofour Productions, responsible for hit series including The City Gardener, are looking for people planning to use their retirement as an opportunity to live out their dreams.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a 65-year-old who dreams of opening a seaside café, or a 40-something with a high-pressure City job who’d rather go and keep bees in a village.

We’re looking for people who are clearing the decks, blowing away the cobwebs and preparing to live the life they’ve always wanted. We’ll focus on your new business venture, be it a cottage industry or something that will make the world sit up and take notice.

Life Begins is not a show about making money - it’s a series about finding happiness - and our cameras will spend 12 months following your journey every step of the way from the farewell handshake at work, through the selling of your old home and the buying of your new one, to your first tentative steps into the new life.

“We’ll be watching you leaving your old friends, making new ones, meeting your new neighbours, and finding your feet in whichever arena you’ve chosen for your new life here in the UK.”

If you’d like to know more, please contact Jon Massey on 01752 333900 or e-mail
