Terms & Conditions

Individuals must be aged 18 and over by 6th February 2017.

Applicants must be available for filming on location over three weeks during June and July 2017.

You will be expected to spend the whole period living on location.  Details of the schedule and exact dates of the filming will be delivered in advance.

This is an immersive living history experience and, as such, you will be expected to train and live in a 1940s environment for the entire period.

You will be asked to relinquish all modern technology; phones, laptops, tablets, and any other electric or communicative devices, in order to immerse yourself in the historical world.

You will be expected to wear period clothing for the duration of the filming, and eat period-appropriate food as part of the experience.

The programme welcomes people of all ages and ranges of physical ability. Please make us aware of any medical or health concerns as soon as possible so that we can work with you to make the filming as comfortable and safe as can be expected.

As a company experienced in producing living history formats, we are aware that these historical environments are not equivalent to modern expectations of living. Whilst it may be challenging, we will work with a Health and Safety expert in order to provide full risk assessments to ensure that no participant’s safety is compromised.

Please note that this series is an ambitious, authentic look at life in World War Two Special Forces. It will be very challenging, but we are confident it will be a truly fascinating and unique experienced for everyone involved.
