New Channel 4 series looking for anarchist teenagers...

WELCOME TO MY WORLD is a new Channel 4 documentary series taking a fresh and lively look at family life – a chance to see things from all perspectives...

Are you a teenager that wants to have your say? Do you have a weird, wonderful or just downright difficult relationship with a parent? Would you be good on TV?

If you are, or you know someone who is, we want to hear from you as soon as possible.

We are Lambent Productions and we specialise in making documentaries for and about young people. We pride ourselves in dealing with contributors sensitively and with the greatest of respect, and the way we work means that you’ll get involved creatively too.

If you’re interested in taking part we’d like to hear from you. Tell us a bit about yourself by email or through our Myspace page:

As it happens, I wrote a poem all about it:
oh god,
why
am I so much more sensitive than everybody else ?
why
do I feel things so much more acutely than them,
and understand so much more.
I bet I'm the first person who's ever felt as rotten as this.
could it be
that I'm going to grow up
to be a great poet and thinker, and all those other wankers in my class
are going to have to work in factories or go on the dole?
yes, I think it could.

my parents are my soul and conscience and a daily inspiration.

I'm sure us sitting there eating a meal made by the kids whilst smuggly bigging each other up would make great TV.

I just realised i know 3 anarchist families.

One kid did rebel and join the Lib Dems - i think they should get a documentary made to try and explain their crazy beliefs.

I'm not sure what they mean about rebelling. Our anarchist family is the essence of harmony.

editors note: Knightrose is talking about his actual family, the AF is not a cult.

'Do want to be on TV so everyone can see how wierd your family are? In a sensitve way of course'

Oh one of our teachers went on one of those cleaning shows, because he had a brother who never washed, suprisingly no-one really said anything, i think we were all a bit too shocked. Yeah i know it's not the same thing but thats what it reminds me of.

it seriously worries me that ppl continue to go on thse shows when anyone who has seen one knows how bad they'll look. What was going through the minds of the fatties who signed up for Gillian Mackheiths hell-camp? Indeed, what is going through the minds of those who repeatedly sign up for big brother? (very little i assume).

There is a very small percentage you will look alright, but a much larger and far more pertinent chance that you'll look bad.

I guess it must be a desperate attempt at fame, but personally i would rather be famous for anything but being so fat i need help, being related to someone with poor hygine or prowling around in a leotard makeing cat noises
