The BBC 3 Are Looking For Couples To Take Part In A Love and Money Programme
Renegade Pictures and BBC 3 are making a new BBC 3 documentary about the effect that money problems have on relationships. The programme will be presented by immersive journalist Cherry Healey and will form part of a series that will be broadcast early next year.
Cherry Healey has presented several programmes for BBC 3 covering a range of topics from drinking to parenting- she was even filmed having her daughter Coco. The programmes are genuinely light hearted and non-judgemental in their approach, whilst also getting to the heart of some very important issues.
BBC 3 Documentary About Love and Money
This new BBC 3 programme about love and money will see her meet a number of couples, all whose relationships have been affected by money in some way. The subject is extremely relevant, giving the current economic climate, with many families even struggling to pay the bills, let alone afford Christmas presents.
The economic downturn has seen a huge rise in couples arguing far more, with money worries being the bone of contention. Relate recently reported a rise in the demand for its marital counselling services, while the Office for National Statistics reveals divorce rates have risen by 6 per cent as the economy worsens.
The BBC 3 programme hopes to highlight some of these pressures that many couples are facing currently in the UK, especially in the lead up to Christmas. By featuring genuine couples who are facing money problems, it will show people that they are not alone and that there is help out there for those that need it. It will also hopefully show that in the end love conquers all.
The production team at Renegade Pictures are currently in the process of casting for the programme and are looking for couples who want to take part. They are looking for couples who have been hit hard by the recession and would be interested in allowing cameras into their lives for a day.
Please leave your thoughts and experiences below about how this recession has affected your relationship with your partner and how the lack of money has impacted on the love you and your partner have for each other caused by the lack of money from debt and unemployment.
