Behind the scenes of our upcoming Lifeline appeal, the BBC's monthly charity programme.
Last Friday we went along to the beautiful Normansfield Theatre in Teddington, West London, to shoot scenes with spoken word artist/rapper/podcaster and actor Scroobius Pip for the appeal, which will go out on BBC One on Sunday 18th November, at 1:55pm.
One-take wonder Pip, who’ll be fronting the appeal, nailed his scenes as the BBC crew filmed him performing a spoken word poem about growing up with a stammer, as well as talking about the work of the BSA.
The film will also feature three other people sharing their moving and powerful stories, including BSA member Jordan Halkier and Trustees Mandy Taylor and Naheem Bashir, who we filmed earlier in the week. You can read a bit more about them, together with Scroobius Pip, at this link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0bss5fc
Our BBC Lifeline appeal will be broadcast on BBC One on Sunday 18th November at 1:55pm and repeated on BBC Two on Wednesday 21st at 1pm. Don't miss it!
