Big Life Fix for Twins or Triplets!


Studio Lambert, the BAFTA-winning TV production company behind Gogglebox and Doctor in the House are looking to change lives, we received this request from Ellie at Big Life Fix

 

We are currently producing the second series of the hit BBC Two show “The Big Life Fix With Simon Reeve”. This exciting and innovative science series sees a team of skilled scientists, engineers and designers create bespoke technology for individuals and groups to transform their lives for the better. In the first series, our team came up with solutions for a range of issues affecting individuals and communities, including creating a device to counter the effects of Parkinson’s disease for a young graphic designer, building a bicycle for a boy born with no hands or feet and connecting a remote village in Wales to the internet.   

 

For the second series we’re looking for more people who feel they could benefit from a tailor-made invention and we wondered whether there was anything our team could design to benefit the people connected to your group? For instance adapting a piece of equipment to make travelling with new-born twins easier? That’s just an example - I’m sure your members will be in a better position to work out what they wish was invented to help with twins (or triplets). Essentially, we’re looking to help anyone who thinks their life (or someone’s they know) could be improved by our brilliant fix team of engineers and inventers.

 

It would be fantastic if you could circulate this email and attached flyer around your club so we can spread the word about this fantastic opportunity to as many people as possible. If anyone is interested in applying, they can call the casting team on 0203 040 6908 or email us at biglifefix@studiolambert.com. If selected, our team will work with them to tackle their problem or challenge using ingenious design and technology. All calls are treated in the strictest of confidence.
