We've had a request for case study participants from BBC2.

They're are creating a one hour documentary about divorce and separation, which will be broadcast on BBC2 in 2016 and presented by documentary maker Louis Theroux.

The documentary will explore how families manage separation, and the impact on parents and children. The aim would be to shed light on the court process and the intricacies of deciding child arrangements.

Focusing on the Hampshire area, they would like to follow the stories of four or five families as they navigate their divorce or separation and are assisted by family services such as Cafcass, contact centres, mediation services and the Family Court.

They are looking to speak to couples who are navigating separation, divorce and co-parenting. They are particularly keen to speak to both sides of the couple to understand both perspectives. Any conversations conducted with them are for research purposes only and are confidential; contacting them does not commit you to taking part in the documentary in any way.

If you'd like to share your experience with BBC2 or have any questions about the documentary, please contact or 07342 032 002 direct.

We at MNHQ don't have any further details about this and BBC Two won't necessarily be monitoring this thread, so if you have any questions about the programme please contact the journalist directly. (If you have any comments or observations for MNHQ, do please fire away and report your post so that our press team will be shown it!)
