I had a part in filming a VT for yesterday’s Victoria Derbyshire Show where they were highlighting the alarming instances of very nasty side effects from the use of Antidepressants.
The ‘extreme’ side-effects of antidepressants was a piece that went out on the show to highlight the suffering that some people are going through with these drugs. It also highlights the massive cost to the NHS and stresses that in some but not all cases the side effects can be pretty damaging. As part of the piece we interviewed Dr Sarah Jarvis who was clear to point out that despite the pitfalls there are many people who benefit immeasurably from the existence of such treatments.
It was a very interesting story to be involved in. Elements filmed by me were Lesley’s first piece to camera, The interviews with our two female case studies (Woman in her bed with the pink top and the Woman in the garden) and also the interview with Dr Sarah Jarvis. The whole VT lasts for eleven and a half minutes which is really long for a news piece. It was produced by Correspondent Lesley Ashmall and edited by the show’s in house editors.
The following images are all screen grabs from my elements of the VT.
