PLANNING - Voiceover Script - Draft 1

  1. 1. SCRIPT MCDONALDS PAN SHOT (INTRO): Everywhere you walk, everywhere you look, fast food. Every day, thousands of teenagers indulge in burgers, fried chicken and chips. The problems of obesity have been increasing year on year. Over 30% of children and teens aged 6 to 19 are overweight, which has tripled since the 80s. Welcome to fast food generation. FIRST voxpops: We investigated one of the biggest cities in the UK, Birmingham. Our research starts in Solihull Sixth Form. This is where we spent numerous days researching into these teenagers lives. Specifically, their relationship to fast food, and this is what they had to say. SECOND voxpops: We also asked students of the sixth form if they ate their 5 a day and the answers were not shocking THIRD voxpop: And no one knew exactly what a calorie was either FOURTH voxpop: Do they even know what their daily calorie in take is? It is recommended that we consume 1500 miligrams of salt per day. You may not be surprised to hear that mcdonalds quarter pounder with cheese contains the majority of your recommended daily salt intake at 1100 miligrames. The worst comes from kfc’s chicken drumsticks. Four drumsticks pack in a massive 1520 milgrames of salt. That’s 20 miligrames more than your recommended daily allowance. It is recommended that we consume no more than 30 grams of sugar per day. Here, the main culprit is the mcdonalds regular coke, which packs in over 76 grams of sugar. More than half the meals eaten out in Britain are in fast food restaurants. Alarmingly, figures reveal that burgers, fried chicken, pizza kebabs and take out curry account for 50.4% of meals brought outside the home. The fast food boom may worry health experts who see this as likely to influence the national obesity epidemic across all age groups. Many fast food options contain trans fats, which are the worst fats for your health. Trans fats increase your risk of heart disease and high cholestral and we should be restricting them from our diet. This is more difficult if you eat fast food on a regular basis. French fries, onion rings and many other deep fried options can contain 5 or more grams of trans fats per serving. Equally as shocking is the saturated fat content of certain foods. The burger king double whopper contains a whopping 23 grams of saturated fat, more than you should eat for an entire day.
  2. 2. Intro for ssfc pan: our research into young people’s fast food consumption starts in solihull sixth form. (shorten pan) Into to charlotte interview: The youth of today love this stuff; they ache for the taste of that chicken nugget and their minds yearn at the thought of a cheese- plastered hamburger. Here is Charlotte Simmonds sharing her insights, as a teacher, into the effects of fast food on academic performance. Kids visit fast food chains now because of the cheap and quickly available food. But do they really get that the grease, fat covered Most of us know that fast food is devastating for our health, but still one in five of us in the UK visit a fast food restaurant. The hunger for grease, fat and sugar is not just here, it’s on a global scale, with McDonalds selling us 46 million meals a day. That’s 1.05 billion a year in the UK alone. And it doesn’t end there… Maccy D’s still own over 30,000 branches across six continents. Fast food has become unavoidable; McDonalds, burger kings and KFCs are popping up everywhere… shopping centres, service stations, drive thrus, petrol stations, train stations, airports, department stores, amusement parks. This is true McDonaldisation. But, are the fast food companies solely to blame for this burst in obesity and endless health problems? Where does personal responsibility overtake the responsibility of schools and food companies to teach kids about this stuff? The price of fast food is more damaging and complex than anyone would originally guess. Health issues come down to more than the personal choice to consume fast food, but down to education of these impending health issues. What would happen if we put t CONCLUSION: After the break, we will speaking to nutritionists and other experts to answer the question: WHAT IS THE REAL PRICE OF FAST FOOD?
