The Age of Loneliness – BBC Documentary

The Age of Loneliness is a documentary produced by the BBC about dating in the modern era. It follows quite a few different participants throughout it and tells their stories about their dating life and their thoughts throughout. As I will be exploring similar themes within my documentary, I have gained an insight in how to present this theme. I have taken the following from the documentary and I aim to use these techniques myself:

  • Cut away shots during interviews to other relevant shots.

  • Shallow focus/close ups during interviews.

  • Establishing shots in new locations

  • Introduction about new documentary participants.

  • Lots of emotional scenes due to subject matter

  • Ends on an ending thought to leave a memory with the viewer.

  • Filler music used often
