[Solved] Channel 5 Documentary on victims of Infidelity

New Member Registered

Hello forum,
My name is Luke and I work for Knickerbockerglory (, where we are producing a documentary which aims to tell the story of infidelity and the reasons behind it in a sensitive and non judgemental way.

The documentary, to be shown on Channel 5 this summer, is part of a series of 3 uniquely frank films based around different, extremely relatable, human stories. The Story of My Eating Disorder; My Mental Illness; My Affair. In these refreshing films we will unravel the stigma associated with each subject, and take us right to the heart of society’s most prevalent and topical social issues – telling your own stories, in your own words.

We would like to hear from men who can talk personally about being a victim of an affair. We feel the media often doesn't portray men talking about this subject and often show men to be viewed as the perpetrators of affairs. We understand that infidelity often a symptom of longer term problems that often don't get heard. We want to give people the platform to tell their stories and share their experience in order to reverse the stigma and silence surrounding this issue. If you have any stories that you would like to discuss then please feel free to share them with us.

Interviews will be filmed on a plain background, without the use of voiceover, and in its simplest form, cut together to tell a rounded and sensitive view of affairs. Filming will take place in the next couple of months. We have already filmed with a number of contributors, including a GP, a writer, a psychiatrist and an ex police officer, who were open enough to share their stories, and we'd love to build on this.

The documentary will be part of a series, of which we have screened the first episode: My Name Is… and I’m An Alcoholic. This documentary got outstanding reviews and truly challenged people’s preconceptions about alcohol dependency. We want to replicate this with infidelity.

You can view the episode 1 on the Channel 5 website or by following the link here:

A little about our company: Knickerbockerglory was started by a BAFTA-nominated and Award-winning production team, who have since made series for the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5, Sky and Discovery. We pride ourselves on being different to other production companies - we work in partnership with our contributors to tell their stories; rather than making a documentary about them, we make a documentary with them. We are open and transparent with our shooting plans throughout the process and are acutely aware of the privilege we have in not only sharing in the stories of those we film, but additionally giving them a platform to be heard. It is for this reason that we have been trusted by different NHS organisations to tell their stories in an honest and sensitive way: We are currently in production for our third series of GPs: Behind Closed Doors.

If you are interested then please do give me an email at
Anyone willing to share their story can be advised that all details and conversations at this stage will be kept completely confidential.

Many thanks again,
