MRM Presents #listeningfromhome

Talent: MRM

When we were all suddenly told to stay home and stay safe, millions of women were suddenly trapped with a violent abuser 24 hours a day. The UN estimates that incidents of domestic violence will have risen by 15m as a result of pandemic restrictions. With limited social interaction and no space to make private calls, asking for help became even harder. So we activated neighbours. Those of us who were also trapped within four walls, could now hear through those walls. And if we heard violence, report it. This film is a story of a horrific situation, the creative industry coming together despite huge restrictions, and a campaign that can last beyond lockdown.

First aired: Thursday 25th June
