Kidnapped By The Kids

1 x 60' on Channel 4

What’s the point of having kids if you don’t spend any time with them? With the longest working hours in Europe, Britain is fast becoming a nation of workaholics. Two children of one workaholic, fed up with never seeing their Dad, have decided to do something about it. In front of his gathered workforce, they “kidnap” their father, strip him of all his office stuff, and then set about forcing him to spend time with them. He is forbidden any contact with work. Needless to say, he is terrified. But will the experiment encourage him to change his work / life balance for good, or will he be back to his old ways as soon as they release him?
