Ein Byd, which is produced by ITV Wales, has contacted us regarding a programme that they hope to make on the Men’s Rights Movement. To give you some background information, ‘Ein Byd’ (meaning ‘Our World’) is a BAFTA nominated current affairs programme produced by ITV Cymru Wales, which began on S4C (the Welsh-language broadcaster) in January 2018. The programme looks at some of the biggest matters in the modern world through a Welsh lens. The topics explored may not often feature in the mainstream news cycle, and essentially looks at topics less explored in our Media today. Having enjoyed a very successful first and second series, ‘Ein Byd’ has built a reputation for bold and refreshing journalism: the subjects covered during the first series include America’s gun laws and last year’s mass shooting in Las Vegas, whilst the subjects covered in the second series include the rise of knife crime across the UK, and Birts going abroad for Comestic Surgery.
As part of the third series of ‘Ein Byd’ (scheduled for broadcast in January 2020), we would like to explore the possibility of doing a programme looking at the topic of The Men’s Rights Movement. ‘Ein Byd’ is aimed at a younger audience, and because of this we aim to make the style of the documentary programme one in which Sion Jenkins the presenter is fully immersed in the topic in which he explores. Their researcher, Ciara Conlon writes:
We understand that Men’s Rights matters are something that affects individuals and is an important movement to whom it concerns . Therefore we understand that there needs to be an open and ongoing dialogue between us and whom we will be working with, which is why we would like to reassure you that we are a very small, discreet crew. Bethan Muxworthy is our producer and also our camerawoman, who would be shooting the entire programme, and Sion Jenkins our presenter will accompany her. The last thing we want to do would be to intimidate anyone who feels as though they are in a compromising position – therefore we wouldn’t film or point a camera at anyone who didn’t consent to be on camera, and confidentiality would be something we would discuss at length with any participant before any filming was to commence.”
They may attend the March for Men and Messages for Men conference in London this Sunday and are very keen to make contact with MRAs, particularly of the Welsh variety!
Please get in touch with them ASAP, if you are interested in being involved. Ciara’s contact details are listed below:
