BBC seeks centenarians


Posted on April 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Songs of Praise, the BBC Television programme, wants to make contact with people who will celebrate their 100th birthday in August this year. Programme researcher Janis Knox said Songs of Praise, a Christian programme screened on Sundays, is compiling a programme for the Queen Mother’s 100th birthday and the programme makers are keen to interview a person who, like the Queen Mother, turns 100 this August. “We would like to find a person who would be willing to share with us some of their memories of the century,” Ms Knox said. “Ideally we would like to interview a person who turns 100 in August but, if that is not possible, we would consider interviewing some one whose birthday is fairly close.” Any care home home owner or manager who believes they have a resident who may be willing to participate can contact Janis Knox on 0161 244 3307.
