Hi there!

My name is Patrick†and Iím an†Assistant Producer at a†TV production company called Studio Lambert, where we make shows such as† Gogglebox. I am currently working on a new factual entertainment programme for Channel 4 called†The Circle†and we are looking for people to take part.

The Circle is an ambitious new TV factual entertainment series, in which contestants will live in one modern block but separately in individual apartments, interacting with one another exclusively through a bespoke voice-activated social media platform, called The Circle. Contestants are filmed around the clock, and there will be games, surprises, twists and turns. The competition will suit confident people who are prepared to be put to the test and the winner will take home up to†£50,000.

If you are interested in applying, or need any additional information, then please do not hesitate to get in touch by emailing

Group and Tailor-made Wildlife Holidays

I am writing from Naturetrek, the leading specialist tour operator in wildlife holidays, based in the village of Chawton, Hampshire, the home of Jane Austen. With over 30 years experience we run Britain's the largest selection of professionally organised natural history group trips, with the best expert naturalist guides.

For a number of years now we have organised tours for various local wildlife and natural history clubs, groups and societies, as well as other learned and discerning organisations. Until it stopped the travel club a few years ago, we organised trips for Cambridge U3A.

To give a flavour of what is on offer, last year, amongst others, we took the Dorset Alpine Garden Society to the Dolomites for a week in glorious June, the Central London RSPB group to the Somerset Levels for a long weekend, and the Natural History Society of Northumbria to Catalonia. This year we are running trips for some new and returning groups to various locations such as North Wales, Northern Ireland, Mallorca, mainland Spain and Poland.

Please let me know if this would be of interest and if you would like to receive more information about our holidays and the service that Naturetrek can provide. We would be delighted to help your group.
