Wall to Wall MediaBack-in-Time-Flyer_500, the maker of Who Do You Think You Are? and Long Lost Family, is looking for a Caribbean family to explore Black British history and its cultural and social influence on British popular culture.

The production company is making a new BBC 2 show Back in Time for Brixton.

It says that one adventurous family will be fast-forwarded through 60 years of history, with no mobiles and roughly the same amount of money and possessions that their ancestors brought with them on arrival.

The family’s journey through time will be underpinned by historical data and the experiences of Black British families.

To take part, the family must be UK resident with at least two children aged eight or over.
