Hello everyone,

We have been contacted by Jess Dawson who is working on a documentary for ITN productions. This is what she said:

"ITN Productions are producing a two-part documentary about savings and pensions for Channel 5. Presented by Michael Buerk, the series will look at some of the biggest social questions facing us all. Are you saving for your retirement? If you are, do you know what your pension is really worth? What aspirations do you have for retirement and how are you planning to make that a reality? The series will look at the experiences of those already retired and feature interviews with pension experts.

As part of this series we need couples or families already saving into a pension, and prepared to take part in an exciting experiment. After outlining their ideal retirement, Michael Buerk and a financial expert would evaluate their current finances and savings. The participants would then be set a number of fun challenges to take on – living out their retirement. Will it be better or worse than expected? This along with a financial expert giving them valuable tips on how to better prepare for their future.

We’re also looking for anyone with a story or opinion to tell about pensions/retirements. We want to cover all angles.

We’re looking for people of all ages and professions from across the country. We really want to hear from single parents, too.

Filming is likely to take place in mid-September to early October 2019.

If you are interested in taking part - or have any questions – we’d love to hear from you, please contact me on"

We don't have any more details about this and this thread won’t necessarily be monitored, so do please contact Jess directly with any queries.
