I AM writing to let your readers know that a second series of the runaway hit documentary Rich House Poor House has been commissioned by Channel 5 and we’re looking for families to take part.

In case you missed it the first time around, in each episode two families swap homes, budgets and lifestyles for a week in a real-life Air BnB arrangement.

While there’s a contrast in their financial circumstances, the two families in each episode are matched by the things they have in common.

The focus of the programme is on how money affects family life rather than an examination of the specifics of each family’s financial circumstances.

The ambition of the programme is to look at how much money matters to happiness through the eyes of the two families experiencing life at the other end of the wealth divide.

The families’ perspectives give a thought-provoking and fascinating insight on how we live our lives.

The series is insightful with genuine purpose but it’s also entertaining, heart-warming and uplifting.

However different their financial circumstances are, the two families in each programme have shared values and common ground that they discover across the week’s swap.
