Subject: [CUCBC Exec Committee] BBC1 filming 'Who Do You Think You Are' Saturday 7th January

Jonathan Rowlands sent a message using the contact form at  


I'm writing from the BBC history series 'Who Do You Think You Are'. The  
series helps well-known celebrities trace their family history and aims to  
put that family history into its social context. I hope you may be able to  
help with our filming.

We're filming a sequence at St John's in January and will be filming on the  
Cam by the Lady Margaret Boat Club on Saturday 7th January. One of the  
ancestors we're looking at rowed during his time at Cambridge, so we'd like  
to get some shots of boat(s) going past on the river. I'm aware this is  
before the beginning of term so it's unlikely there'll be many student crews  
on the river, but would you be able to contact any rowers who will be in  
Cambridge on the Saturday and ask if they would be able to help us out? An  
eight would be wonderful, but if we could get together a four that would be  
great. It would be for half an hour/ an hour from 3pm on Saturday 7th  
January. Beer money can be provided for anyone who can help!

Many thanks,
