Stacey Dooley is one of Britain's most loved documentary presenters. Fashion conscious Stacey's life took an unexpected turn when she travelled to India in 2007 for the BBC3 series Blood, Sweat and T-Shirts to live and work alongside the people in the Indian fashion industry making clothes for the UK High Street.
Upon her return to the UK, Stacey began campaigning against child labour, organising events to raise money for charities and even appearing on BBC2's Newsnight to raise awareness, and has since embarked on a series of investigations to become one of BBC3’s most celebrated presenters.
Stacey Dooley Investigates has seen Stacey look at a variety of topics from sex trafficking and underage sex slavery in Cambodia and the dark side of tourism in Thailand and Kenya, to rave reviews. In 2012 her three part series, Coming Here Soon for BBC 3, explored the lives of young people affected by the global financial crisis, focusing in on Greece, Ireland and Japan. Whilst in the USA Stacey created two series of Stacey Dooley in the USA took an objective look at issues affecting teens across the pond such as: Girls Behind Bars, Border Wars, Homelessness and Kids in the Crossfire.
Bringing the focus closer to home, Stacey's documentary, My Hometown Fanatics: Stacey Dooley Investigates, explored the media hype surrounding Luton in comparison to the political reality of her hometown, and broadcast on BBC3 in February 2012. Stacey has also presented four series of Show Me What You’re Made Of for CBBC, in which young British children adopt the lifestyles of child factory workers abroad.
In 2015 Stacey was back on our screens with her new BBC3 documentary looking at domestic abuse in the UK in Beaten By My Boyfriend and prime time, three-part series for BBC3 lifting the lid on the global war on drugs culminating in Cannabis Smugglers. Stacey also returned as a guest panellist on Channel 5's long-running daytime discussion programme The Wright Stuff.
In February 2016 Stacey travels to Cologne to investigate the Blame Game and the political aftermath of the attacks in Germany on New Year’s Eve that shook the city and the nation beyond its borders
The hard-hitting series for BBC3 Sex in the Strange Places aired in March 2016 and saw Stacey travel to Turkey, Russia, Brazil and Syria to uncover the shocking stories about these countries’ attitudes towards sex and prostitution.
Most recently, Stacey will be looking at the sports hunting community in the US and Africa, an anti-abortion boot camp in America, and she'll be joining the Gulabi Gang - a women's rights group - in India. Brainwashing Stacey Dooley will see Stacey immerse herself in different groups with extreme ideologies and beliefs in a new three-part series set to TX Autumn 2016.
