A TELEVISION production company is looking for people who have set up smallholdings for a new show.

Raise the Roof Productions are looking for people to take part in a new documentary television series for a major UK broadcaster.

They are looking for people who are tired of the stress and difficulties of living and working in busy urban areas and have decided to make a new start, living more rurally in the UK countryside.

People moving far from their current location to buy in a rural area are especially encouraged to apply.

Producers are very eager to find people moving from busy towns or cities to set up a smallholding.

This isn’t about second home owners, this is about families who want to really settle in to a local community and have a more self sufficient life.

They might be moving back to their roots, to run a small business, to bring children up in a safer and cleaner environment, to run a smallholding.

Whatever the reason, the producers want to hear from people about to make a big change of lifestyle to improve quality of life.

Raise the Roof are an independent television production company based in Glasgow partly owned by Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer.

The company specialise in making factual programmes across all networks, with a long track-record of successful entertaining and informative shows.

People who take part in this upcoming series will benefit from advice and support from its high profile presenter, a passionate advocate of rural living, to help them overcome the challenges of the move and settle into their brand new life.
