Change a life, adopt a shelter animal

Brits in Canberra wanted for UK television series

By EmilyH 28 October 2010 27

Hi,

I am working as an assistant producer on the property show Relocation: Phil Down Under (presented by Phil Spencer of the UK Channel 4 show Location Location Location) which helps British people buy property after relocating to Australia.

We are looking for British people who have relocated recently (no more than 10 years ago) to Canberra and have either set up their own business, or have been successful in their work. It will form part of the ‘success stories’ strand of the show.

Can anyone help? If anyone is interested, please contact me at emily.henderson@iwcmedia.co.uk or my colleague Siobhan after tomorrow (Friday) at siobhan.smith@iwcmedia.co.uk

Thanks!

Emily

@pommie

My apologies on the moon shot bit. Must be the Irish coming out in me!

You remember the actual episodes of Faulty Towers – impressive mate (woops I take the mate bit back seeing you’re a pom).

I think Sebastion in the highly suspect “Brideshead Revisited” called them WOGs.

Both based on something some twit from Essex said sometime in the 19th century, I seem to recall.

On people from Cornwall @ Wales – just remember anyone born outside the actual Home Counties is considered a WOG!

I’m sorry, but you are sadly misinformed, you really aught to watch the Fawlty Towers episode “Communication Problems”.

As anyone of taste will tell you, anyone born outside the actual Home Counties is considered “not one of us…”

yes, pb, but are you gifted?

I’m sure he was bored at school, apparently they’re the same thing these days.

I don’t mind, I’m so magnanimous I even talk to the Welsh…

(But I keep my hand on my wallet while doing so…)

Hold on. Julia Gillard’s Welsh..

Old, gifted and white, to coin a phrase.

@pommy bastard

you walk on water & swim with the sharks?

Make up your mind…either you can swim or you can’t

Is freshness required? Menzies was British to the bootstraps, relocated to Canberra and was by all accounts successful. Get a shovel and a microwave…

Damn, they’ve got those assistant producers working hard – the show must be a good product. I got an email a few days back from another AP trying to hunt down ex-pats in the Canberra wine industry for the same gig.

And modest…

Sorry, I forgot that. I’m very modest too. I’m the most modest person you could ever want to meet, modest to a fault I am. It’s funny I forgot that, as Barrak said it to me just the other day; “PB, you’re such a modest man.” Cameron, Gillard and that frog geezer, Sarkozy or whatever his name is, and his tasty missus, all agreed with him. So whom am I to forget? Also I’m kind, generous, warm-hearted, great with kids and old people, fine company, humorous, as witty as Wilde, as funny as Connolly, as sharp as Fry and as intellectual as Hawking. The perfect companion at the opera, the cricket, Buck House, or the lowest slums.

Everywhere.

Even in Cornwall?

I’m a Brit who has relocated to Canberra. I’m tall, good looking, immensely sexy, highly articulate, doctorate level intelligence, and hung like a brewers dray. My wife is a part time supermodel/sex goddess. I’ve been so successful that Steve Jobs and Donald Trump come to me for business advice. I own Lyons and Phillip. I walk on water, and only need to eat every second Thursday. I drink with the nobility and swim with the sharks. I have found a cure for cancer and will be part of the next moon mission.

Whoaa…….! Too damn good for me then. I was going to post a near identical description -alas though I only own one suburb……………Red Hill.

Can I be in it?

I was born here and am exactly 0% British, but still I want to be on TV.

+1

But I’d rather meet Kirstie than Phil. Love Relocation Relocation!!

Actaully scratch that – Sarah Beeny is the bomb. Come and do an Australian Property Ladder, Beeny!

Mmmmmmmm – Phil Spencer.

Someone needs to tell this girlie to try Perth (although I’m sure she already has). They’ve taken over all the northern suburbs, own nearly all the houses up there, run most of the shops and real estate agencies. They’re rampant.

Meh…Emily did say “British” so I guess you could still be included Thumper.
