  • - The introduction to the program will be a montage of knife movements ranging from cutting butter to eating food, to preparing food to butchering animals. - After the introduction the teenagers that have been affected have their point of view, which is who we will interview (haven’t got in contact with them yet). - The police talk about how bad it REALLY is and what they have to do, try to discourage knife crime but say their part (going to get in contract extremely soon to get a lift around at night whilst carrying a one-leg tripod). - The parent’s point of view would then come in and this would be the more emotional part of the program, will not have parent who has lost child, but one that at least had a child involved. - Finish the entire program with a bright future – government schemes, school schemes and anti-knife crime movements. Research has shown the London Metropolitan police doing a campaign with the slogan of ‘Carry a knife and the consequences will follow.’ It is an advertisement on television channels that are regularly watched by young people (channel 4, MTV, Kerrang! (as well as a lot of other music channels)) we WOULD interview metropolitan police to see exactly what’s going on. The kind of environments that we’ll be filming in would not be busy ones – it would be sub-urban. But specific location would probably include: Staines Chertsey Addlestone Egham
  • The type will be to have the people in the show be judged, but also to keep a neutral point of view – leaving a lot of room open for opinion for the audience. This is to have a narrator and observe what is going on in the program, but also ‘fly on the wall’ to make the audience feel like they are a part of it, keeping them in that environment with hand held helping with that as well (as it gives more of a natural perspective feeling to the camera) – like ‘The Real Hustle’ and ‘Junior Doctors: Your life in their hands’. We will (most of the time) have only one camera. This is because we do not have to worry about disturbing the spontaneous improvisation of actors, instead we can just ask the subject we’re interviewing to stop and work with us on camera (such as cut-aways or editing mistakes). The invisible editing would be a good thing to help the flow of the program, if the audience can see the crew having difficulties (such as not being able to film somewhere they announced they would try to) it can make the program un-easy to watch as it feels unprofessional.
