BBC looking for Co-Parents


We have been contacted by Catherine Phillips at the BBC regarding a documentary they are hoping to make on Co-Parenting. 

Please read on if you are interested.....

The BBC is hoping to make a cluster of documentaries looking at modern family life in the UK.

As a part of that, we'd like to make a film about gay/lesbian and/or straight (or both!) co-parenting.

I'd be very keen to talk to families who are co-parenting at the moment, or who are starting the process of having a baby with a co-parent.

Please don't feel that by talking to me at this stage you'd be committing to anything!

I'd like to know about your experiences of having a child, how families and friends reacted, what it's like to co-parent etc.

We're aware that TV doesn't always have the best reputation for being sensitive, but I think the key is to find a family who have an interesting situation and a story to tell, but also to reflect that family life for gay/lesbian couples is just that - normal family life.

It would be great to hear from you - please feel free to contact me on catherine.phillips (at)
