TV program on domestic violence in regional Australia looking to interview male victims

We have been contacted by the producers of a one-hour programme examining domestic violence in regional Australia - part of a series examining social issues in regional areas.

Part of the reason for doing these programmes is to explore issues specifically outside of the metro cities and to give a voice to people affected who may not necessarily be heard via other media outlets.

For this programme on domestic violence they are particularly keen to hear from men who are affected by this issue.

They are looking for 2 case studies:

1. A male victim who has been subjected to physical violence at the hands of a wife/defacto/intimate partner. Ideally that would have some photographic/video record of the abuse, police reports etc to accompany their story.

2. A male victim who has suffered non-physical abuse. Online harassment, bullying, emotional intimidation, financial pressure or threats involving their children.

The producers are happy for men to take part either 'on the record' or anonymously.

If you would be interested in being interviewed for the project, or you know of someone who might be, please let us know.

Many thanks!

.my story is more into the manipulation used to then create dv to continue the dv from afar

I'm in regional Victoria and have kept a dairy of dealings with police and I know my story of injustices and discrimination would make peoples heads spin off. I would love to be involved but not too sure if I should as I intend on taking court action against the prejudices and discrimination and don't want to jeopardise the case. I'd need to know more about just how anonymous I could remain for the show.

Sign Me up, WANT to tell My story. Already told it in letters/emails to former & present PM's, NSW Premiers, various NSW LNP Ministers & NSW Police Commissioners to NO avail. Occurred in Kempsey, NSW over a 5 year period. I HAVE photographic evidence

I fit both both categories. Have paperwork, photos, audio recordings from a previous DV assault. Coincidentally I met with local Federal LNP member today to discuss this issue and walked away insulted and in disbelief. I'd love to share that experience on its own.
