Stacey Dooley investigates the current global financial crisis and its affects on the young in her brand new BBC 3 TV series Coming Here Soon.

Stacey travels to Greece, Ireland and Japan to find out what it's like to be young and caught up in the world's worst financial meltdown in living memory.

In the first episode of the series Stacy visits Greece to see how austerity measures have dramatically affected the lives of young Greeks, leaving many unemployed, angry and all unsure about their futures. In the second episode Stacey heads to Ireland to where she meets a group of young protesters angry at the financial mess they have inherited and in the final episode she travels to Japan where an entire generation have experienced two decades of an economic slump.

In each episode Stacey offers an insight into what could happen in the UK if our debt was to get any worse and how lessons could be learned.

Coming Here Soon starts at 9pm on BBC 3, Tuesday 26 June. Watch the trailer below:
