First of all let me apologise for contacting you out of the blue. I am hoping that you might be able to connect me with members of your community group regarding a television series we are working on.
The series is looking at the story of the GI babies the children born to British women and American servicemen based here during the war years through till the 1960s and 70s. As you may know, there were a large number of US bases throughout the UK, and as a result, it seem likely that many of these children remained close to the area they were born and settled here.
We are particularly keen to talk to children fathered by African American GIs, as their experience is not one that has been given a huge amount of attention. I know this sounds like a little bit of a needle in a haystack search, but we are convinced that, if we can get the word out, that people may be interested in sharing their experiences with us. I should emphasise that at this stage we are simply looking to talk to people â€“ no commitment to taking part in the final programme is needed at this stage.
Many of these individuals will now be in their mid-70s, although some will be younger. I would really appreciate any advice you could offer about how to get the word out about our search both through your community group, but also in your wider local area? Are there local forums we could post on, or people running other groups you might be able to recommend? I understand that the current situation is creating a lot of uncertainty and that some people in the community may not have access to social media and internet, but it would be great if you could pass a message or notice to your group explaining what we are looking for and / or suggest other methods of reaching out to people.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.edit.I have received the email appeal below from Jake Stoodley at Wall-to-Wall TV Productions.
