Bullied or harassed by old classmates? I'm David Clews and I'm a producer for Betty TV, an independent television production company in London, and we're making a documentary about Friends Reunited. As part of the programme I'd like to try and talk to anyone in the UK who has logged on to the website and been bullied or harassed by old classmates. Has this ever happened to you? If anyone is interested in having a chat they can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on 020 7357 8577.
Chatterbox: my name's Alex Parnell and I produce a programme for Portsmouth and Southampton TV called Chatterbox. Portsmouth TV is a UK terrestrial station that broadcasts to the immediate area 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We'll soon be joined at the end of October by our sister station, Southampton TV. Chatterbox, which is a pre-recorded half-hour programme, is broadcast during the day and it's primarily a women's interest programme. We usually have three guests on the sofa with our presenter, Becky James or Kathy Cole. I would very much like to do one of my programmes on various aspects of bullying. I would really like a mum and child/teenager who's been or is being bullied at school to come in and talk about the effects it has had on them. I would also like an adult who's been bullied either at school or in the workplace. If anyone living in the Portsmouth or Southampton area is interested in joining us for this coffee-morning style discussion, please email me at email@example.com. Alternatively, call me on 02392 659 100.
Cyber bullying and flame mails: I'm Lucy Gooding and I'm a freelance journalist researching a feature on women who have been affected by cyber bullying, ie via e-mail, chat room or fake postings on web sites, whether it be at work or at home. I am trying to find women (preferably in the UK) willing to talk about their experiences as I am want to convey the scale and seriousness of the problem and the impact that such bullying can have on ordinary women's daily lives. I am contactable at firstname.lastname@example.org
Bullying of students at university: I'm Kate Crockett and I'm researching an article to pitch to one of the national's education sections. I would like to speak to any UK university students who have been bullied or who are being bullied about their experiences and about how they've coped. It's an interesting area which I think hasn't really been looked at. *Article appeared 12 October 2002 in the Rise section of The Guardian*
Long-term effects of bullying: I'm Vicki and currently doing my dissertation at Manchester University for a BSc (Hons) Psychology. I am currently exploring whether childhood bullying has an impact on wellbeing in later life. I am looking for volunteers who were bullied as a child or are currently experiencing this as an adult. If you feel that you would be able to speak to me or even fill out an anonymous questionnaire please email me at email@example.com. I assure you that confidentiality will be protected.
