  1. 1. Similar Documentaries Teenage Pregnancy
  2. 2. BBC3: Underage and PregnantThe BBC3 series follows a teenage soon to be mother as they cope with the problemsbeing a teenage mom brings. This documentary is observational because it follows themothers without changing the situation in any way. Also Underage and Pregnant could beseen as educational because it is showing how hard pregnancy can be for a teenager.Because of the strong language used in the documentary, it is scheduled at 10pm whichis after the prime viewing time. Also, I think BBC3 is a good channel for this programmeto air on because younger people watch BBC3 and by watching this programme it shouldshock them into realising how pregnancy can affect a teenager. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00t6932
  3. 3. Channel 5: Teen Mums and MeTeen Mums and Me is a documentary where Kym Marsh investigates what life is like forteenage moms today in Manchester. As a teen mom herself, Kym Marsh provides aninsightful view into what being a teen mom is like first hand. This is an example of aparticipatory mode of documentaries because it shows Kym Marsh getting involved in themoms life and their daily routine. This programme is aired on Channel 5 at10:00pm, which is considered prime time. This means at the programme would gainmore viewers, especially as they have a well-known soap star and singer to host it whocan share her own views and experiences to other potential teen mums.http://www.channel5.com/shows/kym-marsh-teen-mums-and-me
  4. 4. BBC3: Kizzy: Mum at 14BBC3 shows the life of Kizzy, a girl who, at 13, became pregnant and later gave birth to aboy. The father, 15 year Louie, was horrified, and ran hundreds of miles away to hisgrandparents house in Torquay. This documentary is observational, as it shows us Kizzyand how she copes with her everyday life. It could also be educational as it teaches usthe danger of becoming pregnant at such a young age, and how difficult it is to cope witha child at that age. Because of strong language and the content involved, this programmeis aired on BBC Three at 10:30pm, which is considered as after the prime viewing time. Ithink BBC Three is a good channel for this to be on as it mainly gains younger teenageviewers, and with such a programme, it would educate them into the world of teenagepregnancy, and hopefully put them off becoming a teen mum.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jWa31M9SKFQ
  5. 5. BBC3: Pregnancy; My Big DecisionThis BBC3 documentary series shows the lives of two young girls, who both believe thata child is for them, despite their age. 16-year-old Chantelle hopes to have a child with her20-year-old boyfriend, whilst 14 year old Lydia is convinced she is independent enough toraise a child even though she doesnt even have a boyfriend. As they follow theteenagers in this observational documentary, they are both introduced to many differentsituations before they make the big decision. It could also be educational as manyteenagers are now thinking about pregnancy at a young age, believing they are grown upand mature enough to care for their own child. It was aired at 9:00pm, which is primetime for television. This is to gain many more viewers, especially young teenagers whoare also considering the idea, and for the parents of children to educate them on whattheir children may be considering the idea.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNnEBUa5fUM
  6. 6. BBC Learning Zone: Dear NobodyThis BBC Learning Zone programme comes from the docu-drama “Dear Nobody”, wherea teenage couple, Helen and Chris, begin a sexual relationship and face difficultdecisions when Helen becomes pregnant. Helen tries to focus on her education andfuture, however when her emotional state starts to change, she realises it may not be aseasy as she thinks. This is mainly used online, for teaching purposes in schools. Thismeans the acting and situations are suitable for teenagers, not really for adults. Thiswould be considered as an educational documentary, as it is used in schools andcolleges to educate the students on the dangers of sexual relationships and pregnancies.http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningzone/clips/dear-nobody-teenage-pregnancy-pt-1-6/3714.html
