I am writing from a documentary company based in Oxford called Landmark Films. We make documentaries for BBC, ITV1, Channel 4 and Sky1. We are known for making access-led, intelligent, distinctive well crafted, warm and funny films about human stories, different places and institutions. Our latest documentary series was Brain Doctors for BBC2, a three part series on the neurology department at the John Radcliffe Hospital.
In the new year we are due to start making a film about cats for the BBC. We would like to look at the UK's opinion on cats, and represent a balanced view of things. I know that cats can be a problem for gardeners, either due to fouling or to bird killing which is frustrating. We would like to speak with people who have a problem or concern in this domain. We will also be speaking with all sorts of groups - cat protection and rehousing and looking at why stray and feral cat populations are increasing in the UK, how sanctuaries are struggling to deal with the intake of rescues. If you have a strong interest in cats please feel fre to get in touch.
All correspondence will be dealt with in complete confidence and by contacting us you are not making a commitment to take part in the final programme - at this stage, it's just research.
