Channel 4 television is looking for mechanicallyminded families to take part in a new show based loosely on its successful Scrapheap Challenge format. Each week two family teams - three members: one male, one female and one under-18 years old - will go head-to-head to design and construct 'mindblowing inventions'. If you want to take part contact Jamie Balment at Ideal World Productions for details, Jamieb@idealglasgow. com, 0141 353 8424
