BBC Radio 4 “The Slow Coach” – A two-part series following three busy people as they undertake a bold experiment to slow down their pace of life.

We’re looking for a busy mum (or dad!) who wants to slow down.

We want to follow you as you spend a month being coached by Carl Honoré (author of international bestseller) "In Praise of Slow", and put his suggestions into practice in your daily life. You don’t have to believe it’ll work, but you do have to be willing to try!

If you’re interested, we’d like to have a phone conversation with you. After that you could decide whether you’d like to take part in the programmes. We also have to consider whether you’d fit into the mix of people we have in the series.

If you were to be involved, we’d need you to be available to come to London on Monday 20th May to start the process, and then be available for recordings in person and on the phone at various points during the following four weeks, plus one follow-up a couple of weeks later.

Produced by independent radio production company Loftus Media ( for BBC Radio 4.

Definately too busy to travel to London! But it sounds good. I will look forward to listening to the programme.
