Proposal Template (Binge Drinking)

Extracts from this document...


Proposal Prepared by Ahmed Adelabu My research has shown me that in the UK binge-drinking accounts for 40% of all drinking occasions among men and 22% by women. � 5.9 million people drink more than twice recommended daily guidelines on some occasions. Binge drinking is most characteristic of the young: � Those aged 16-24 are more likely to binge-drink with 36% of men reporting and 27% of women binge drinking at least once a week. � Between 1998 and 2001 the proportion of young women binge-drinking in this age group has increased from 23% to 27%. Behavioural consequences include: Accidents - 25% of all alcohol-related deaths are due to accidents and it is estimated that alcohol is a factor in 20-30% of all accidents. The DETR estimated that in 1997 nearly 2% of drivers/riders breathalysed following road accidents failed the test with 4.45 of male drivers/riders aged 20-24 failing the test. ...read more.


Among 16-24 year olds 42% of men and 25% of women said they had had an argument after drinking and almost seven out of ten had witnessed a fight after people had been drinking. Drunkenness - a Home Office report recorded that in 1995 19,789 people in England and Wales were found guilty of offences of drunkenness, and police formally cautioned a further 22,80928. Workplace - 8-14 million days are lost each year in the UK as a result of alcohol-related problems. A 1998 Institute of Personnel and Development survey of personnel professions found that 46% of firms experienced problems with alcohol misuse in 1997-1998 (up on 11% on 1996). Unsafe sex - possibly leading to unwanted pregnancies or sexually transmitted diseases including HIV/AIDS. Bagnall and Plant (1991) reported that in a group study of 16-30 year olds 82% of respondents reported drinking prior to engaging in sexual activity. A 1998 HEA survey of 16-24 year olds found that after drinking alcohol: � one in seven have had unsafe sex (i.e. ...read more.


The main goal is not to just make the audience more aware but to scare them as well as a sort of wake up call to stop binge drinking or to prevent them from ever starting. This goal shall be reached by adding clips of archive footage exaggerate negative things the interviewee will say, for example if the interviewee were to mention he/she got into fight perhaps a clip of a little riot would be shown. The full interview may be 5-10 minutes, depending on the interviewee. The programme will be produced on digital format cameras; there will be two cameras active throughout the whole interview for a wider range of shots. It will be edited on Canons High campus in the media suite. Since everything required is my personal and schools disposal there's no need to discuss a budget. This production will cost �0. However if I had to pay the interviewee, the cameras, the set, the drinks in the opening and for time in a editing suite we'd be looking at about �600. ?? ?? ?? ??
