Marie Claire

I'm writing a report for Marie Claire magazine on women and debt. It's on why young women are getting into so much debt in the UK - scale of the problem, what's being done, and what people in that situation can do about it. I wondered if you could help me source some case studies who'd be willing to talk about their experiences, and be photographed. Ideally I need women in their lates 20s/30s who have either beaten debt or are still in it.

BBC2

BBC2 is making a sensitive and intelligent six part observational documentary series about people living with compulsive or addictive patterns of behaviour. The films will be touching human stories of people coping with behaviour they cannot control, rather than a 'scientific' series aiming to explain psychological conditions. We are looking for people to talk about their lives in their own words and without being labeled by professionals or 'experts'. These may include people who are unable to stop themselves from shopping yet never unwrap their goods; or people who have an irresistible urge to gamble in spite of its destructive consequences; or people who take extreme risks that get them into uncontrollable debt.

If you are interested, and would like to hear more about this project, please call in complete confidence Jason - 020 7258 6791 or e-mail:

jevans@mentorn.tv

Have you been forced into debt by circumstances out of your hands?

Have you been forced into debt by circumstances out of your hands? Maybe you have been made redundant? Has divorce halved your household income? Has an injury left you unable to work and in serious financial trouble ?

The BBC is producing a special series of programmes that will examine the nation's spending habits and offer advice to 3 people who's debt is proving hard to control.

If you are interested in taking part, please send an e-mail to tom.gillett@bbc.co.uk with your name, contact details and a brief synopsis of your situation.

DEBT PORN HAS ARRIVED

It's been around for a while in my opnion and getting a bigger share of the schedule time.

Anybody been watching spend-a-holics on BBC3, hour long program similar in sytle to bank of mum and dad. I think it's bound to make the transition to BBC1 or BBC2 in the near future. They have commissioned a second series due later in the year.

No. whens it on?

Did anyone see this mornings 'Moneyspinners' on BBC1? 2 families -related- on the dole who wanted to save £1500 for a new computer? They had debts totalling £5k!

They did get off their backsides and start earning (with the incentive of a free pushbike and free driving lessons :blink: ) and managed to 'save' the money they wanted. They didn't use it to repay some of their debt ( the programme took them to one of those debt agencies) they bought a laptop. Now not only is a laptop virtually non- upgradeable so needs replacing every few years, but the one they bought looked nothing like £1500 and they could have had a basic one for a lot less that was more than enough for their needs.

edited for tons of spelling mistakes and bad grammar. :rolleyes:

They had a whole week of them last week Monday - Friday starting at 7:30 until 8:30. I'm sure it will be on again in the near future.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree/tv/spendaholics.shtml

The basic idea is a 20-30 something turns up with £40k of debt on a £12K salary and they send round a financial expert and a pyscologist.

One of the people last week was a women on £15k with something like £45K a week, totally out of control. She had no idea how much she spent a week, she thought it was about £200 but she was racking up £750 on non-essential spending. She only earned £350 a week so was going another £400 in debt each week.

The pyschologist bloke basically gets into their head and finds out what's at the root of their spending behaviour. They should get me on, a quick slap round the face and tell them not to be such selfish greedy bastards should do the trick.

These shows have become boring now. They basically find the most financially inept 25-30yo they can and then they must tell them to act like an **** to make each episode more ridiculous than the last.

Oh yes. If it's a woman they have to start blubbering when told that they can't have a new handbag this week. Load of crap.

So what was her excuse? Not enough A-levels?

The crux of it was that through her whole life her dad was pretty ill and the effect was that she lived each day as it was the last.

Her dad died and then she had a car accident a week later, which in someway made her spend money. Not sure how that worked, especially given she was already in about £20K debt before both of those things happened.

To be fair many of these people have had problems in the past, but haven't we all. I could list a string of events in my life (many far worse than this lot have had to endure) which could have sent me down one path or another but it hasn't led me into debt.
