BBC Two is looking for a Taxi Driver to take part in the latest programme of the award-winning current affairs documentary series: Toughest place to be… a Taxi Driver!

 

The Toughest Place to be… series takes British workers to do their jobs in some of the most challenging places in the world. Previous programmes have seen a fisherman cast off to Sierra Leone, a bus driver swapping his double-decker for a Jeepney in the Philippines and a paramedic dealing with the aftermath of gang fighting in Guatemala City.

 

For the latest series the team are looking for Taxi Drivers who are up for a challenge and would like to test themselves on the roads of a far-flung country. This is an exciting opportunity to experience a different culture and see what life is like for a cab driver on the other side of the world.

Previous participants in the series, such as binman Wilbur (pictured), have talked about how the experience has changed their lives. They have forged strong friendships with their host family and have gained a unique connection with a foreign country.

 

Josh, a London bus driver who took part in the second series of the show, said he felt like he found a brother when Filipino host Rogelio let him in to his life and entrusted him with driving his precious Jeepney.

  • For the latest series one adventurous cabbie will spend 10 days living and working in another country in September 2012. It’s a once in a lifetime chance to explore a new culture, it looks set to be a real challenge but it will no doubt be a rewarding and memorable experience.

If you are a black cab driver interested in finding out more about this challenge then get in contact with Rosie on 020 3614 0390. All calls are confidential and you will be under no obligation to take part.
