This afternoon I received the following email from Scottish Television.
I hope you’re well. Please excuse the unannounced email however I’m hoping you might be able to help. I am working on the new series of the hit STV game show The Lie hosted by Susan Calman. We gave away thousands of pounds last year and are looking for teams of two to come forward and take part to win big! They could be friends, colleagues or family members just as long as they already know each other and think they could have a go at spotting “the lie”. We are looking for contestants from all over Scotland, applicants must be 18 or over and the deadline (12th August) is fast approaching so any help spreading the word would be much appreciated. I have attached a poster for your viewing with details on how to apply for the show. I would be most grateful if you could maybe you would consider putting the poster up on your staff /public notice boards, and even better to post it on your intranet, facebook or twitter account. I can send through a poster if necessary. Can you let me know if this is at all possible? I look forward to hearing from you soon
Kindest Regards Warren Atkins
I replied to say that were the show asking for volunteers to spot the lies told about the Catholic Church we would be inundated with offers, but in any case I would post Warren’s email on the blog and leave it to our readers to choose whether or not to participate. He gratefully accepted. You can read all about The Lie if you click here
Then, if you would like more information or to contact the show direct, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
