Film Company Looking for Brits buying small farms in Poland

I am a researcher with an award-winning documentary film company called Films of Record, based in London. I am currently researching a possible film for the BBC about British people emigrating to Poland to live on small plots of land in the countryside-setting up small farms, and maybe keeping a few animals. We are ideally looking for British families who are about to make the move to Poland, and would be interested to discuss making a film with us about their experiences. Do you know anyone who might fit this description? If so, we would be very happy to talk to them. Please contact Nicole at Films of Record on 0044 (0) 207 286 0333 with any information on this topic, and I will call you straight back.

By the way, I am also aware that many Poles feel that foreigners who settle in Poland often do so without really understanding the Polish culture and the realities of life in Poland. As a half-Polish and half-English researcher, I am interested to explore these issues also in the documentary.

With Very Best Wishes,

Nicole Tattersall

Dear Miss Researcher,
As a half English and half Polish person, i assume you are aware that for a non national to buy and cultivate farmland is very difficult, due to bureaucracy.

Please stick www. infront of the following and read (why am i doing your job?).
cato.org/pubs/journal/cj24n3/cj24n3-6.pdf

I fear the documentry would end up about 90% of its time in the local ministry offices sorting out paper work and would be exceptionally dull.

A documentry about people moving to Poland and just buying regular property would be challenging enough.
