Village SOS (6×60′ ) – Sarah Willingham, (The Restaurant) presents a Lottery-funded series that follows six villages as they open a new rural business with the help of six village ‘champions’. Communities are invited to submit their applications to take part to the BBC, who will shortlist 18 potential businesses and champions in November 09. The shortlisted villages will get three months development funding before a final six villages are chosen. Each new business will then be backed by the Lottery fund for a year, while cameras follow their fortunes.
The fund will then back each business for their first year, with BBC Wales continuing to follow the projects.
