Websex: What's the Harm?
I am from the BBC's TV Current Affairs Department. I'm currently making a documentary for BBC 3 called "Websex: What's the Harm?". In essence it's a serious, not salacious, investigation in to the impact of the internet on our sex lives and relationships.
Part of this is also exploring the impact the internet has had on marriages and relationships. There are many cases we hear where couples have divorced because of discovering their partner has been communicating with other people online and maybe even meeting them in the "real world".
We are looking for potential contributors to the programme, so if the internet has affected your relationship then please get in touch- firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to hear from you!

BAFTA AWARD-WINNING TEAM WANT TO HEAR FROM YOUNG COUPLES GETTING MARRIED THIS YEAR FOR C4 DOCUMENTARY
Rare Day (http://www.rareday.co.uk) has been commissioned by Channel 4 to make a landmark series of five stand-alone documentaries about growing up in Britain today.
We’d really like one of films in the series to explore what it means to form positive and committed relationships through they eyes of under 25 year olds, particularly those who have experienced their own parents separating when they were younger.
We want this to be a positive and inspiring documentary, featuring thoughtful young people making sense of their family background and coming to a realisation of who they are and what they hope for in their own lives.
We’re a BAFTA award winning team used to working responsibly and collaboratively with young people. We will be carrying out our duty of care according to guidelines we've established with C4 and hope that filming itself will be an empowering experience for the people involved and chance to tell their stories in their own words.
If you’re under 25, getting married this year and think you might be able to help with this project, please contact assistant producer Ayesha Tariq on email@example.com / 020 7729 8699 for more information. There’s absolutely no obligation for anyone we speak to as part of our confidential research to be involved in any filming.
DO YOU LIVE WITH YOUR EX?
The women’s section of a quality British newspaper is looking for three former couples in their 30s, 40s or 50s to talk about how it feels to share a house or flat with your ex-partner. I’m writing a piece on this modern-day trend and would love to speak to both of you about how you’ve made it work. It could be you’re sharing a house for the sake of your children, or for financial/logistical reasons, or simply because despite being separated you still get on well.
All I’d need is a phone interview with each of you and for us to be able to take a photograph to go with the piece. I can pay each pair £50 as a thank you for their time and also plug any businesses/websites/books etc which you’d like us to.
We’d love to hear from you, so please email me as soon as you can for more details on firstname.lastname@example.org or ring me on 07976 742 803. Many thanks, Emma
SURVIVED A CRISIS??
Journalist is looking for couples to take part in a feature about the 7-year-itch and how they overcame it. Except it's not ONLY about the SEVEN year itch, but also the ONE, THREE, ELEVEN and 25+ year itches that experts say are 'crisis flashpoints' in many marriages. For instance, many marriages go through a crisis after the birth of young children. Or when kids leave home to go to university and the couple is left to live as man and wife again rather than a family. Perhaps you've considered leaving, but fought hard to save your marriage.
If this sounds like you - and you do not mind being interviewed AND photographed (no anonymous stories I'm afraid) then please get in touch with email@example.com. There is a PAYMENT of £400 to each couple whose story is published in the newspaper. PLEASE NOTE: Couples must be British-based, they must be married (not simply co-habiting) and they must have gone through the crisis in the last three years (so for instance, we don't want couples who have been married for 20 years talking about their 7-year-itch.)
LOOKING FOR COUPLES WITH A HUGE AGE GAP – HOW DO YOU MAKE IT WORK SO WELL?
Are you a woman in your 40s, 50s or 60s – or older – who is in a relationship with a guy in his teens or 20s?
Or are you a man in your 60s, 70s, or 80s who is going out with a girl in her teens or 20s?
If so, Closer magazine would love to hear from you – and to hear all about the secret of your relationship. What makes it work, what makes you tick as a couple? Can you explain why age really doesn’t matter?
You would need to be photographed but would of course be paid. Or if you know a couple like this and can put us in touch do drop us a line and we will pay you too for your help.
LOOKING FOR COUPLES BATTLING WEIGHT ISSUES
Do you and your partner both weigh over 20 stone?
Are you both determined not to lose weight and love feeding each other? Perhaps it’s the curves that attracted you to each other in the first place?
Or are you undertaking severe gastric surgery together in a bid to lose the pounds?
Closer would love to talk to you about your story.
You would need to be photographed but would of course be paid. Or if you know a couple like this and can put us in touch do drop us a line and we will pay you too for your help.

Quality national newspaper seeks stories of love that didn't last
I’m looking for ex-couples to interview for the Observer Woman’s Ex-Files column.
There are lots of examples of previous Ex-Files here
I’d just need a chat about a previous relationship and the lessons you learnt from it, nothing salacious or bitchy, just an overview - how you got together, what went wrong, and how you’ve moved on, that kind of thing. I need both partners’ perspectives, so I'd be speaking to your ex about it too. But interviews will take place separately and can be by phone, email, or in person if you live in or around London – whatever you prefer.
Apparently the ex-couples who take part usually find it quite therapeutic and interesting to hear what their ex has to say.
The paper is happy to plug interviewees’ books, blogs, websites, businesses, or charities, etc. and they would probably want to photograph you for the article.
You don’t have to contact your ex yourself if you don’t want to, just let me know their email address and I’ll get in touch and find out if they’d like to be interviewed.
Please drop me an email if you're interested: firstname.lastname@example.org

Have you found, or rediscovered, love late in life?
A journalist working for BBC Radio Stoke is producing a series looking at people finding 'love again' later in life. He is looking at covering the subject from a variety of angles. As well as hearing stories from couples who've found a second love after a bereavement or divorce, he is also looking at how people go about looking for love a second time around. But he also thinks it would be really interesting to hear from a couple who've found love again in a relationship they're in already. He is wanting to hear the personal stories of couples who've rekindled that love a second time around. This could include things like renewing their wedding vows and other ways they've established that love a second time around.
The broadcast area covers South Cheshire and North Staffordshire so he is looking to speak to people in this area. It would all be pre recorded and edited (i.e. not live) and is nothing too scary. He is just interested in people stories. If anyone can help, please contact Mick Tucker at firstname.lastname@example.org or ring on 07940 774607. He is looking to put this series out in the next few weeks so do contact him as soon as possible.
Couples wanted for TV documentary
A reputable London television production company is developing an enquiring and quirky documentary to be shown on British TV about people in the UK who share a bed every night, looking at the myriad of behaviours we deal with while falling asleep, staying asleep and waking up each morning beside a partner.
Mixing light-hearted humour and serious analysis, it'll explore the daily routines and realities of sharing a bed with another person, revealing much that is important - and much perhaps that isn't so important - about sleep, relationships and modern British society.
We're now looking for couples who might be interested in taking part in this documentary. We'd like to feature a wide-ranging mix of normal, everyday people with both very ordinary and highly unusual stories to tell, some about health and happiness, some concerning sickness and sadness, all of which in some way reveal a different facet of what it means to share a bed in the UK today.
To find out more, go to www.bedsharing.co.uk - we look forward to hearing from you!
