Minnow Films


My name is Sally and I work for Minnow Films, a multi-award winning independent production company based in London, renowned for making sensitive and intelligent films across a wide range of subjects. Please visit our website to read more about our work: http://www.minnowfilms.co.uk/

We are currently producing an exciting new series for Channel 4 about the recruitment and training process of becoming a spy, where we will explore the type of person it takes to serve our country under cover.

We are looking for a group of 20 ordinary men and women to attempt a course based on the authentic Recruitment and Training phases of the Britain’s Intelligence Services. The course will be as close to the real thing as possible, immersing the Candidates in a world of psychological pressure and uncertainty.

The key aim of the series is authenticity. We want to deliver genuine insight on what it takes to join the Britain’s Intelligence Services. It will be screened on Channel 4 at prime-time towards the end of 2016.

Our task now is to cast our net as wide as possible, to give everyone the opportunity to apply. It is very important to us that we speak to a very diverse range of people – from all areas in the UK, all with different hobbies and backgrounds…which is where I thought you might be able to help!

I thought this might be of interest to the members and followers of the Women in Business Network and wondered whether you might be able to help us get the word out there to see if anyone would like to apply. Please do feel free to forward on to friends and family too!

With best wishes,
