  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:

  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. Definatly pick WP for the programme, along with some Guardian reporters and that Chakribati woman. That would be worth the licence fee alone
  5. 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"

    It would be like I'd died and gone to heaven.....
  7. How much money would I get, and when Ive finished can I release my own single and have a chat show on living tv?
  8. Why do you want to bring and member of Her Majesty's along for this jorn't then?

    Any fit birds doing it, got a bar?

    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.
  10. he wants an ex-soldier so he can make you look like a clown infront of the rest of the TV watching public.
  11. Count me in. I might consider accidentally exposing my breasts if the price is right.

  12. 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?

    From Rear Party:

    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 remember doing a "church house" course many moons ago, excellent week, "please help yourself at the bar and be honest and sign for your drinks" :wink: :wink: :wink:
