New series of "UK's Worst?" on BBC 1: I'm Emma Bowler and I'm working on the BBC 1 investigative consumer programme "UK's Worst?". We are looking at the possibility of making "UK's Worst Employer?" - do you work for or know this organisation? Do you or did you work for a boss from hell? Perhaps you work in or know of a call centre whose regime is especially strict? You might even be able to help us expose sweatshops right here in the UK? If you think you can help us please get in touch asap. All contact will be dealt with in confidence. Ideally email me in the first instance: email@example.com [Tel: 020 8752 4524].
What have you been through? I'm Kate Pickering and I'm a director at Libra Television making a programme called Citizen Power for UK Channel 4 Schools. It is used as a teaching aid for 10-14 year olds. One of our future programmes is about diversity, and the acceptance of others. We need to show how damaging it can be if someone has not been accepted. Maybe you've come through being bullied and are able to speak about your achievement to help and give hope to others. Maybe you are being bullied now and want to have your say (identities can be protected) or maybe being a victim turned you into the bully. We are looking for a young person, who is willing to speak about their experiences, aged between 10 and 16 and living in the UK. We would like to hear your stories to help young people in similar situations and make others think twice before they bully. The film will be approximately 3 minutes long. To find out more contact Kate at: firstname.lastname@example.org Please send a few details about your circumstances. You are not committing yourself to anything by getting in touch. Libra Television specialises in making children's and education programmes; we need parental consent for any broadcast contribution made. You can see Citizen Power every Tuesday on Channel 4 at 11.25: www.channel4.com/citizenpower
Bullying in the media: I'm Andrew Don and I'm writing a feature for Press Gazette on journalists who have experienced workplace bullying. If any journalists have experience of either a) being a workplace bully! b) being a victim of workplace bullying. What I would like to know is if you were bullied, what form this took and the effect it had on you. How was it resolved? Or let me know if this is a current situation. If you are courageous enough to admit you were once a workplace bully, or perhaps are still one, why were you/are you? Anyone who admits to being a workplace bully gets a bonus for being brave enough to come clean! I would like to hear as soon as possible about your experiences either by e-mail at email@example.com or tel 020 8959 7358 or 0208 906 8148. I would ideally like to quote names but I will respect anonymity if insisted on.
Girl gangs and girl bullying: I'm Cathryn O'Neill and I'm a producer with Princess Productions, an independent television production company based in London. I'm currently developing a television documentary on girl gangs and bullying between girls. I'd be very interested in talking to you if you're a member of a girl gang or if you're a girl who has been subjected to bullying by other girls. I can be contacted in confidence via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 020 7243 5108.
Jealousy: I'm Hollie Smith and I'm seeking a woman in the UK who was a victim of jealousy in the workplace - not unusual, I'm sure, as this seems to be a common motive for bullies. It would just involve a brief telephone interview, and anonymity promised if that's important. It's for a dossier style piece for Woman magazine. There's a (very small) fee on offer to anyone I use. Contact Hollie Smith at email@example.com
Bullycide and Red Nose Day: I'm Vic Southwell and I work for Comic Relief in the UK. We raise funds through Red Nose Days which culminate in a night of television. We also raise awareness about issues through fundraising films that we show on the TV night and through extensive media exposure. One issue we are keen to highlight this coming Red Nose Day (March 2003) is mental health and young people. We are particularly interested in the issue of bullycide. The most powerful way of raising public awareness and making people listen is by using real stories that include personal testimony. We want to invite anyone who has a personal testimony related to bullycide, or any organisation who might be able to help us in providing that vital personal testimony, to contact us. The films are made by an experienced BBC team who will manage any contributions is a sensitive way. If you feel that you can help us, or would like more information please contact me: Vic Southwell, Comic Relief, tel 020 7820 5578, mobile 07941 927605, email V.Southwell@comicrelief.org.uk
Bullying in a convenience store: I'm Andrew Don and I'm writing a feature for Convenience Store magazine in the UK. I would like to hear from anyone who works for a convenience store who has experience of bullying. Contact Andrew Don at firstname.lastname@example.org
