BBC looking for "Dangerous" boys

Jane Goddard at the BBC's Inside Out programme is looking for gaming tykes between the ages of 10 and 12 to join the author of The Dangerous Book for Boys for one of their programmes. Her cryptic email suggests that they're hoping to find "kids who spends all spare time on the playstation" and with parents' permissions they'll take them away from the console for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

There may be an ulterior motive here; while the Beeb has traditionally been well-balanced about the subject of gaming, this may be an excuse to problematise the pass time. Then again, this could be an opportunity to revolutionise attitudes from within!

If you're interested in putting your Little Jimmy of John forward, contact Jane Goddard at jane.goddard+at+bbc.co.uk. Marthas, Marys and Nancies need not apply.
