Mad about Parking? Parking Mad is coming to a TV near you

Regular readers will recall Mr Mustard's appearance in the first episode of 4 of the 1 hour Parking Mad series on BBC1.

Another 3 programmes have been commissioned and people with parking stories are needed. It could be you on the silver screen and you'll end up like Mr Mustard (slightly better known than he was a year ago) who takes parcels in for all his neighbours and one of today's delivery drivers said "You're that parking ticket bloke off the telly, aren't you". His employer challenge any PCN he gets but then make him pay if they lose which seems pretty tough on a delivery driver who is doing anything up to 160 drops a day for them and not earning a fortune. The next PCN he gets will be handled by Mr Mustard. Interestingly one problem he has is the shared use "loading" bays which cars can often use in the borough of Barnet from 10 until 4. His van is quite large and he can't then get to park in the High St and it makes his job more difficult. The idea that there weren't deliveries between 10am and 4pm was always a dubious one.

If you have a story to tell, then contact James Lewis of Century Films (the same production company as before) by email on james.lewis@centuryfilmsltd.com or telephone him on 0207 378 6106 and tell him your story.

Don't expect to be on the TV next week, it takes months of preparation and filming to make a TV documentary.

Traffic wardens and parking managers are equally welcome to join in.

Yours frugally

Mr Mustard
