New TV Documentary looking for people to get involved

#1
Hi

I am working on a BBC documentary and looking for people to get involved.

Having made ‘The Monastery’ and ‘The Convent’ which has just finished airing on BBC2, we are now looking to make ‘The Retreat’. As with the last programmes the intention is not in any way trying to convert people to any one religion but about providing space for them to learn and develop as individuals.

If you think you may be interested in getting involved or just want more information please do give us a call on 0207 434 6883 or email: theretreat@tigeraspect.co.uk

I'd love to volunteer.... I'm deeply tolerant of other peoples religious beliefs and would dearly loved to be locked up with a few so that we could discuss differing religious philosophy... Would I be allowed to bring a firearm?

I'm up for it. Is there a bar? And sky sports? And some decent porn? I could do with developing my right arm abit more.

Definatly pick WP for the programme, along with some Guardian reporters and that Chakribati woman. That would be worth the licence fee alone

I think you'll find that the British army dont much care for the word "retreat"

can you retitle it "tactical withdrawal"?

i'll do it if i can wear rollerblades and a tu tu and call myself "the last prophet of color climax"

RETREAT!

Never - after dinner last night some Dago asked if I'd care for Dessert.

"Dessert - Never damn your eyes you shifty Wop" I thundered "I'll die facing the enemy or through auto erotic asphixiation in the time honoured manner of my forbears".

Unless of course this will be the "Retreat - from Moscow" where the contestants will be forced to endure terrible hardship at they struggle back to Hannover's Thai Eros being pursued through Russia and the Low countries by Russian Ladies on motorbikes with a need for hard currency and passports.

In that case I'm in.

How about taking 30 people from all walks of life, train them to use weapons and operate as a team, and then put them in a small building in the middle of somewhere like Afghanistan or Iraq, instruct them to "do stuff" and film them.

The only problem is that they might not want to go topless too often....

No, stupid idea. I'll get my coat.....

Didn't quite give the full details did you Old Boy?

Hi,

I'm hoping some of you might be interested in being involved in a new documentary series we are making. It's following on from a Series that was called 'The Monastery' and 'The Convent'. This new series will be called 'The Retreat' and we are looking for 6 people who will spend 4 weeks in an Islamic Retreat in Europe.

I know this may sound daunting and maybe not up your street at all. That's fine but we want to find people who maybe feel there is something missing in their lives. Is this you? In the retreat you will be able to escape todays stressful world. It will be a place to take stock of your life and think about what you really want out of life and what is missing.

Along with the chance to be in a space away from from today's hectic world there is also the chance to discover more about Islam. We're not wanting people to convert to Islam but we want people who have questions about this faith.

If this sounds of any interest to you and you want to know more. Please do email theretreat @ tigeraspect.co.uk and we can explain more about the project in detail.

Also contact 0207 434 6883
I suspect that your answers may have been even more colourful if you had not left some of these details out.

I strongly suspect a stitch up going on here.

I'll do it.


I have a few contract clinchers though;


A supply of Smoky Bacon crisps
A two handed broad sword
A copy of Salman Rushdie's 'The Satanic Verses'

Is swearing and violence allowed on the program? I want to be myself and do not want to 'play to the camera'.

I'm very tollerant of mad mullahs, rag heads, flip flop wearers and any other third world heathen extremist.

Will this four week Islamic retreat be similar to the ones run in Afghanistan, Syria and Libya (I believe the latter was closed down a while ago)?


Have you asked MI5? I'm sure they would love to pop a few people in.

Will this retreat be run in the border area of Pakistan?
Will their be a shooting range?
Will their be a cave and a satellite link to Al Jazeera and CNN?
Who runs the course?

I understand it i not trying to recruit to one particular religion but will their be a rabbi their if the need arises?

Will prior experience of weapons explosives and the london underground be to my advantage?

How strange, a man from the media being economical with the truth, I think you'll find your "retreat" may be a mosque in London and absolutely no bacon crisps but just a few anarchist pigs.

A bigger gun required then?
