Stalked (w/t)

22 October, 2021

Across two 45 minute episodes, Stacey Dooley will embed herself with a specialist police unit and a victim support organisation - dedicated to stopping stalking from escalating into life changing violence, or even murder.

Stacey finds out there are no one size fits all answers when it comes to preventing stalking and prison alone can't do it, but with police and health professionals working together tackling each case long term, we're more likely to see real changes. To be produced by ScreenDog Productions Ltd for BBC Three.
