The BBC is making a one hour observational film about the experiences of dads after a separation or divorce to be presented by Louis Theroux. Louis’s recent work ranges from filming in a school for autistic children in New Jersey to producing a film about end of life care in a hospital in Los Angeles. Now back in the UK, our aim for his new series, as is in these recent films, is to explore the experiences of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances.
For many people a divorce or separation will be one of the biggest emotional upheavals they will ever experience. Our aim is to produce a sensitive documentary which spends time with fathers who have gone through this experience and are doing their best to maintain happy and healthy relationships with their children. We would like to hear from dads from all walks of life who feel they have a story to tell.
At this stage all conversations are confidential, are for research purposes only and do not commit anyone to taking part in the documentary. This request is now closed.
