Blindboy Boatclub to Present BBC Documentary on the British Housing Crisis
28 Aug 2018 :
Member of The Rubberbandits comedy and music duo, Blindboy Boatclub will present a documentary for the BBC focusing on the housing crisis in Britain.

The BBC Press Office announced that the television documentary will follow Blindboy "on a quest to unpack the housing crisis and to question the system that leaves millennials homeless,” The project has provisionally been titled ‘Blindboy Undestroys the World.’

At the Edinburgh TV Festival, BBC Three controller Damian Kavanagh added:

"(On) BBC Three we will always provide a platform for distinct voices and tell stories that matter to young people in Britain today. With these new shows, we’re doing just that by featuring a truly unique voice who unpacks the housing crisis and its impact on young people in ‘Blindboy Undestroys the World’.”

Blindboy recently set up his own podcast, which instantly became number one on Ireland’s top rated podcast charts. Blindboy later took to twitter to announce: “Guess who’s getting his own bbc series?” adding that “I will flag in advance. The pilot episode will be broadcast; it’s about the housing crisis IN BRITAIN. Because bbc paid for it. I would have loved to focus on the Irish housing crisis, but RTE would have to ask me to make that, and they didn’t.”

BBC Three, the British broadcaster’s online platform has previous funded Peter Foott’s Irish comedy ‘Young Offenders’, which has been commissioned to return for a second season later this year.

The air date has yet to be released for the BBC documentary.
