Our idea for a new documentary TV programme will
•An extract from the documentary. Approximately
five minutes long.
•A double page spread from a listing magazine
focused on the documentary.
•A newspaper advertisement for the documentary.
We have chosen to have our documentary on Channel 4 for a few
We like the style of Channel 4 as they usually have the presenter
being the voice of God too. We think that, that effect will make our
documentary more professional.
Choosing a station to broadcast a documentary has a lot to do with the
target audience. On Channel 4 at the moment, there are many
documentaries about teenagers. We think that our documentary will fit
in to Channel 4 because of our documentary being about teenage life.
•We will be looking at how adolescence
has changed in 30 years and why has it
•We will be doing this by comparing a boy
and a girl in their teenage years nowadays
and looking to see how teenage life has
•Interviews with older generations comparing with day
in the life of the two young teens will show how different
teenage life is.
•Covert and overt filming will make our research very
accurate as we can talk to the teenagers overtly but
film there actually daily life and routine covertly.
People in the documentary
• The “voice of God”
• An average teenage boy- around 16-18 years old.
• An average teenage girl- around 16- 18 years old.
• Two females and one male from the older
generation who will be interviewed.
The sub genre
•Expository ‘voice of god’ style of documentary
•The same voice will do the voiceover and the
interviewing in person.
•Some music will be over the background to give a
chilled and cool effect.
•Unbiased- the documentary will not take sides.
•Adults that were teenagers around 30years ago as they
can see for themselves how much teenage life has actually
changed and if it is how the media portray it.
•Adults who stereotype teenagers would also fall under our
target audience as the documentary will show them the truth.
•Also teenagers themselves will be interested in how their
generation is being portrayed.
Our documentary will be-
•5 minutes long.
•Have the narrator interviewing
people during our documentary.
