Part of a series of episodes directed by Vito Rocco for ITV. It was broadcast in August 2018 with viewing figures of 6.89 million per episode. Rocco worked on the series as director, leading a cast and crew of 80, overseeing every element in the realisation of the script to screen, from pre-production through production to post-production and broadcast. Each episode relates to the on-going contemporary narrative of the characters within the long-running series and deals with current social issues including infant mortality, drug abuse, childcare issues and the impact of the removal of essential infrastructure on rural life. Issues within these episodes are commented on by end users and fed back into the script process by producers and script editors. The generation of new content is directly informed by the continuing commentary within social media interfaces linked to the series. The episodes connect with and continue Rocco's on-going research into the impact of user-generated content as an initiator and source of cross-platform content. This work follows on from Rocco's investigation within Faintheart (the world's first user-generated feature film) into the creative relationship between end user and filmmaker, fictitious and real-life characters and reflects on the successes and failures of working within this mode. This project examines whether it is possible to document, either through fiction or factual storytelling, something whose truth is many sided or ultimately inscrutable.
