Television Stacey Dooley Investigates

Stacey Jaclyn Dooley (born 9 March 1987[citation needed] is an English television presenter and journalist. She rose to fame in 2009 after appearing in a number of BBC Three TV documentaries highlighting child labour issues in developing countries.

Background[edit]

Dooley was born and grew up in Luton, Bedfordshire, and once worked as a shop assistant at an airport.[1][2]

Career[edit]

At the age of 21,[3] Dooley first appeared on television as one of the participants on the documentary TV series Blood, Sweat and T-shirts. Dooley and the other participants were selected to illustrate the typical fashion-obsessed consumer. Thanks to her popularity on the show, partly because of her interest in third world labour laws, she was given her own show, Stacey Dooley Investigates, in August 2009. The two-part special was shown on BBC Three throughout August and September 2009. It also aired in Australia on ABC2 from 2 June 2010.[4]

In October 2010, BBC Three aired two further programmes, the first on former child soldiers in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the second on sex trafficking and underage sex slavery in Cambodia.

In 2011, BBC Three aired Tourism and the Truth: Stacey Dooley Investigates. Over two episodes, Dooley investigated how tourism in Thailand and Kenya is affecting local workers, in particular with regard to local wages, corruption and environmental changes.[5]

My Hometown Fanatics was broadcast on BBC Three on 20 February 2012. In the programme, Dooley was in Luton, where she talks to Islamists and the English Defence League. A three-part series entitled Coming Here Soon was broadcast on BBC Three in June and July 2012, in which Dooley explores the lives of young people in three countries affected by the global financial crisis: Greece, Ireland and Japan.[6] The programme on Japan was criticised by some due to the fact that it ignored the Samaritans guidelines on reporting of suicide.[7]

In 2015, Dooley was a member of the judging panel for the Observer Ethical Awards.[8]

In 2016, Dooley presented Stacey Dooley in Cologne: The Blame Game, about the New Year's Eve sexual assaults in Germany, which aired on 29 January. On 30 July, Dooley appeared on the BBC's Celebrity Mastermind where her specialist subject was the television series Girls. In November, Dooley appeared in a TV series called Brainwashing Stacey, where she went to a US anti-abortion summer camp and then to some African big-game hunters.[9]

In December 2016, Dooley was stopped by police in Tokyo while filming Young Sex For Sale In Japan, a documentary about child sexual exploitation in Japan. She was held by police for two hours after initially being confronted by two men who demanded "no movies". The story was released a few days before the programme was made available in February 2017.[10]
