BBC Horizon is making a documentary exploring ADHD. There will be two strands to the documentary and so they are looking for two groups of contributors with experiences with ADHD as follows:
Call out #1
“Does your child have ADHD?
BBC Horizon is making a documentary exploring ADHD, aiming to create a wider public understanding of the condition. Presented by Rory Bremner, a comedian with a particular interest in ADHD, the BBC is hoping to shed light on this commonly misunderstood condition.
The BBC wants to meet parents of children with ADHD who can tell them about what life’s like; and to also hear from their child about their own experience of the condition.
If you’re interested, please get in touch with Zoe on firstname.lastname@example.org, just for a chat in the first instance. The BBC will be very pleased to hear your story.
Call out #2
“Do you have ADHD? Do you feel it has it impacted your life?
BBC Horizon is making a documentary exploring ADHD, looking at the variety of ways that mild to severe ADHD can impact people’s lives in both a negative and or even positive way: with the aim of to increasing public understanding of this condition. It will be presented by Rory Bremner, a comedian who has first-hand experience of the condition. For a specific item of the programme, we want to hear from people with ADHD who feel their condition might have contributed to them entering the criminal justice system.
Please do get in touch if you think this is you. In the first instance, it would just be a chat on the phone – you do not need to commit to anything upfront.
The BBC appreciates the sensitive nature of the subject, and will handle all calls with the utmost confidentiality and respect.
The BBC is interested by the fact that ADHD is overrepresented in the prison population, and are interested in speaking with people who feel as though their ADHD may have contributed to their criminal behaviour. They hope that by sharing your story, the BBC can help to shed light on this commonly misunderstood disorder.
If you’re interested, please get in touch with Zoe on email@example.com: just for a chat in the first instance.”
