Looking for people from the U.K.

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

“Is your partner’s addictive gaming having an effect on your relationship?”

“Have you witnessed a serious impact on their social life, physical health and career progression as a result of compulsive gaming?”

“We are currently researching for a documentary for the BBC, looking for individuals from the U.K. that are suffering as a result of their partner’s addictive game playing.  Although in the initial research stages, the documentary will be an insightful, observational film, looking at the impact of gaming addiction on the life of the user, and those close to them.

The documentary will be a sensitive portrayal of all the parties involved, naturally subject to the consent of each individual.  We would love to hear from anyone who is resident in the U.K. that is happy to share their story with us.

If you are interested in contributing to our documentary, please call Perjit on 020 7440 3434 or email perjit.aujla@ortv.co.uk in complete confidence to chat about our programme further.”

Anyone in the UK want to be interviewed for the SUN?

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

Hi all,

Laura Stott from the SUN in the UK is looking for couples to interview for an article. I think it is a great opportunity to bring awareness about this growing problem. Feel free to email her at Laura.Stott@the-sun.co.uk and just let her know that you are a member here on the site.

Here is her original email to me:

Hi There,

I am a journalist writing a piece about gamer widows for a piece in The Sun newspaper in the UK (Newscorp).

I am looking for two UK based couples who would be happy to talk to me about the effect playing virtual world games has had on their relationships. They must be happy to be pictured.

If you are able to help or point me in the right direction that would be wonderful. I can be reached on this email address.

many thanks

Laura
