New Television Review show seeks 5-10 year old children for a Major Broadcaster

I am a Researcher working at a television production company called RDF Television. We make successful series like Channel 4’s The Secret Life of Four and Five Year Olds and How to Spend it Well with Philip Schofield for ITV.

We are producing a brand new Review Show for a major broadcaster and are looking for children between the ages of five and ten years old to give us their perspective on the world around us.

At a time when adults can be afraid to say what they think, we want to hand the news over to someone else - The Kids. Our show will be warm and funny and uncover what children really think of the news. From world leaders like Donald Trump to home schooling during Covid to the latest news about Meghan and Harry - no topic is off the agenda! This is because we think it’s time for a new generation to make sense of the world we are living in.

We are looking for children between the ages of 5 and 10 years old who are smart, funny and opinionated and who can offer us a fresh take on the world around us.

We are casting now and will be filming in October and November 2020.

Apply at newsat5casting@rdftelevision.com

We will be complying with the latest government guidelines regarding Covid-19.

Very best wishes and I look forward to hearing from you,

Chris Piper

UK government bans groups of more than six people from Sept 14th.

Social gatherings of more than six people will be illegal in England from Monday - with some exemptions - amid a steep rise in coronavirus cases.

The law change will ban larger groups meeting anywhere socially indoors or outdoors, the government said.

But it will not apply to schools, workplaces or Covid-secure weddings, funerals and organised team sports.

It will be enforced through a £100 fine if people fail to comply, doubling on each offence up to a maximum of £3,200.

The new rules - which come into force on 14 September - mark a change to England's current guidance.

At present, the guidance says two households of any size are allowed to meet indoors or outdoors, or up to six people from different households outdoors. Until now the police have had no powers to stop gatherings unless they exceeded 30.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will give further details of the changes at a Downing Street news conference at 16:00 BST on Wednesday, alongside senior advisers Prof Chris Whitty and Sir Patrick Vallance.

What are the new rules for meeting my friends?
Five reasons rise in Covid cases is not all it seems
"One of the pieces of feedback we had including from the police was that we needed the rules to be super simple so that everybody knows what they are," said Health Secretary Matt Hancock.

"And now this will now be rigorously enforced by the police."

Mr Hancock told BBC Breakfast: "This is really simple. Gatherings are ok, they should be socially distanced of course, but groups only of up to six."

He said it means that some families will not be able to see both grandparents at the same time. "You know, I have three children," he said. "We have a family of five. And so we'll be able to see one other person at a time, as a whole family."

Challenged on whether the new rules could stop grandparents helping out with childcare, Mr Hancock said: "I'm not actively trying to do that".

But he said the government is "quite worried about" the "very serious problem" of children potentially passing on the virus to older grandparents.

Culture Secretary: New rapid Covid test 'has potential to help us get fuller audiences in theatres'

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said last night that new improvements in testing can help get 'fuller audiences in theatres and fans in stadiums back sooner'.

Following the UK government's £500 million investment in quick Covid testing kits to provide rapid tracking of the virus, Dowden was optimistic that the new funding was a "very positive" step towards allowing events featuring a greater capacity.

According to GOV.UK, the new tests, which are being trialed in Southampton and Hampshire, can provide results within as little as 20 minutes using a testee's saliva. A further trial will also be taking place in Salford.

The hope is that testing capacity will be boosted ahead of the winter season, which, according to medical experts, may see another rise in cases if not handled correctly.

The government said yesterday: "By using this cutting-edge technology to widely roll out rapid tests, chains of transmission will be broken almost immediately by delivering on-the-spot results. Successful trials will then be expanded and rolled out more widely."

Casting for environmental video

Hello,

I am producing an environmental video for a grassroots organisation and we are looking to cast some male and female speaking roles (range of ages and ethnicities) to get our message across.

Unfortunately the positions are unpaid as we are all working for free on this but I wondered if any amateur actors might be interested in being in the video?

We are filming for one day on the 13th/14th or 15th September - location is likely to be Victoria Park, East London.

Producer

Paid Acting Opportunity - September 2020

My organisation will be facilitating a training workshop virtually (via Zoom) for humanitarian workers on investigating allegations of staff misconduct, specifically sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment. The most important learning element of the course will be a full day simulation of the interviewing stage of the investigation. During this, we will use actors to play the parts of the different characters in the investigation (complainant, survivor, witnesses and the subject of complaint) and the participants will work in groups to interview them.

You can read more about us at www.chsalliance.org, and about the course at https://www.chsalliance.org/get-support/training/investigations-workshop/ We have been offering this workshop for more than a decade, and it is widely respected across the aid sector. Those who have completed it tell us that they are confident to put the skills that they have learned into practice, leading to a better and safer environment for those receiving humanitarian assistance.

We provide the actors with the case materials, role descriptions and a logistics note in advance. The simulation exercise will take place on the 24th of September 2020 from 7.30 to 12 UK time.

We are looking for a total of six actors to assist us with the exercise:

• 1 man and 1 woman in their 20s
• 1 man and 1 woman in the 30s
• 1 man and 1 woman older than 30s

Because of COVID-19 the workshop will be held remotely via Zoom.

It therefore doesn’t matter where the actors are located as they will join in the workshop using their zoom account. The only strong requirement we have, would be for the actors to attend the briefing (on zoom or skype) and have a strong internet connection.

The fee we offer to pay is £200 per actor. This would cover the their performance and attendance to a briefing meeting where all would be explained in details to help them prepare.
