Politicians Don't Care About Young People

Rick Edwards | Posted 04.06.2014 | UK Politics
Rick Edwards

I passionately believe that we have to stall this slump in the youth vote. And then reverse it. We are in real danger of letting down an entire generation. We need to force politicians to care by hitting them where it hurts - the ballot box. Which brings me onto Russell Brand...

The world is often a troubled place, and sometimes world leaders need to not just be strong, but also look strong to inspire confidence. At least that must be the rationale David Cameron was using, otherwise he's simply a vain lunatic with the presence of mind of a sloshed uncle at a wedding...

A War on the Young? The Closure of BBC Three

Des Freedman | Posted 06.05.2014 | UK
Des Freedman

The BBC's decision to close its sole youth-focused TV channel, BBC Three, is both depressing and divisive. Depressing because it represents yet another attack on a generation that is already facing the sharp end of austerity policies with high youth unemployment, welfare cuts, the prospect of huge debts for those who choose to go to university and the lack of affordable housing which will now prevent millions of young people from leaving the family home.

'Cocaine Capital of the World'

Stacey Dooley

I have spent the majority of my year across three continents where I have been filming a new series for BBC Three focusing on the new frontlines of the global war on drugs. My journey starts in Peru, which has now become the new cocaine capital of the world, overtaking Colombia. Peru sends most of the cocaine to Europe and so a lot of it will end up in the UK.

Is Cold Calling on the Way Out?

It is the bane of anyone with a home or business telephone's existence: The unwanted cold call. Even with the invention and growth of the internet, many of us are still targeted by companies trying to flog us something that we have absolutely no use for.

Comedy Should Be Controversial

Richard Taylor | Posted 05.04.2013 | UK Comedy
Richard Taylor

Assisted suicide is not inherently funny. Or is it? And an intellectual disability should not to be laughed at. Or (wait for it) should it? In amongst all the talk, the outrage and conflicting views I cannot help but think, comedy should be controversial.

The Hypocrisy of Pornography

Lewis Shepherd

I may be wrong but in the same way it is perceived that women may think they have to act and perform a certain way during sex because of porn, then surely the same principal can be applied to naïve or impressionable gay men, which in this case could prove dangerous

Riots: The Aftershock

Gemma Cairney | Posted 04.09.2012 | UK
Gemma Cairney

I heard on the radio yesterday a young policeman describing some rioters who had attached Stanley knives to sticks to use as weapons. This is gutting and the new statistics are stomach-churning. One of the things that I remember most from those evenings last year is the fear. That crippling feeling of the unknown. How close to our homes were they going to get? Why?

Experiencing BBC's Free Speech

Jason Reed | Posted 02.06.2012 | UK Entertainment

Aimed at the younger end of the voting demographic, I was soon pondering as to why a youth based political show hadn't come to fruition sooner. With a blissfully simple premise, and from the makers of Question Time, I had high hopes for the show.

Pramface Was Bound to Disappoint, and it Did

Richard Berry | Posted 25.04.2012 | UK Entertainment
Richard Berry

Any show pitched as "the new" something is bound to be a disappointment. Only the most successful shows are followed by their very own "the new"s, so the comparisons between BBC Three's new sitcom Pramface and two leading forebears, Gavin and Stacey and The Inbetweeners, may have raised expectations to an unsustainable level.
