LION TV is offering a getaway to a primary teacher feeling the pressure of reaching Professor Barber's literacy and numeracy targets. It wants a teacher to join a group of castaways on a remote Scottish island for the start of the new millennium.

The 30-strong group will be expected to construct homes that can survive Scottish winters, cultivate the land and keep animals. Lion TV is producing Castaway 2000 for BBC 1 to explore how society could change.

The series will have nine programmes, three of which will be shown this year and the rest a year later. Primary teachers interested in this rather extreme solution to classroom stress should contact: Karen McGrath at Lion TV on 0181 735 4089.
