UK - The BBC is on the look out for a typical Newfoundland fishing family to take part in a documentary series.

The series on parenting takes two British teenagers and places them in families to learn to live according to their rules and way of life.

Associate producer, David Chesman said: "Following the huge success of the first series, the BBC are looking for role model families to take part in a third series of factual entertainment programmes on parenting. In each one-hour programme, two British teenagers will be sent to live with a family abroad, to experience life in their country under their rules.

"In the last series, the BBC sent overindulged teenagers from the UK to live with families over the world, from Jamaica to India, Alabama to South Africa.

He added: "We are really keen to feature a hardworking fishing family from Newfoundland.

"We are looking for a traditional Newfoundland family (with children aged approx. 14-16) who are proud of their strong parenting and family values and who would be willing to accommodate two British teenagers for one week in August 2010."

Mr Cheesman continued: "During their week-long stay, the British teens will be expected to attend, church, help with household chores; they will not be guests in the house but new members of the family. We’re looking for parents who believe in instilling old-fashioned discipline, values, boundaries, morality and respect in their own children and who are keen to do the same for two British teenagers who have lacked a bit of structure in their lives."
