British families wanted for a documentary series! For a lot of young women (and sometimes men), au pairing is an unforgettable experience. Many leave their families to move abroad, away from everything familiar for the first time in their lives. The host families are there to set rules and boundaries, but can also become role models, potentially friends for life.
Aito Media are looking for families in the Greater London area who wish to find an au pair to live with them during the autumn of 2013 and are willing to share their experience on television.
The programme will mainly concentrate on following the au pairs and their time in London, but we do also wish to film some of the domestic life with the host family and hear any thoughts they may have during the time of having an au pair in their home.
The programme will be broadcast on Finnish National television in 2014.
We believe these experiences -the excitement, forming of friendships, even cultural differences and coming to terms with them- are worth sharing. So don't hesitate to get in touch and ask more if you feel you may be interested!

Eight young people have to face a crime scene for the very first time. They learn to use force, face violence - and make new friends. Are they able to survive the 2,5 year long police academy training and become real police officers? The main characters come from different backgrounds: Night club doormen, personal trainers, parents of little kids. Some come straight from school. The one thing in common is the same ambition: to become a police. They will have to learn how to use a gun and face many different scenarios, but there is much more to the training. As one of the trainees say: "Studying is good, but nothing beats facing real-life situations." Each police student has to spend at least seven months of internship at a real police station. Future Police Officers tells stories of young people in crossroads and shows the action of the police officers on the beat.30 episodes will be on air from Monday to Wednesday 8pm on Channel 5 Finland.
