RTÉ Are Looking For Stressed Students To Take Part In A New Documentary

RTÉ are making a documentary (Tubs isn't involved by the way) about stress, with a focus on the ruddy difficult time that all students face when going through college. As such they're looking for student volunteers to lend their experiences of the myriad stresses of college life.

If you or anyone you know would be interested in railing about just how stress-inducing that one annoying professor in that nonsense tutorial is, on a national platform, then we've attached the press release for the show, titled 'Under Pressure' below.

Under Pressure is a new two part television series that examines the science of stress and explores just how much pressure we are feeling in our daily lives. It will also look at what can be done to help reduce our stress.

Due for transmission on RTÉ One television in May 2018, the series is a co-production between Firebrand Productions, (‘Autism & Me’, ‘Bullyproof ) and stop.watch Television (‘What’s Ireland Eating’ and ‘Science Friction: Nuclear Fear’).

The series will bring science into the lives of a number of stressed out individuals who are finding it hard to cope with the constant pressure they are feeling under and who want help to deal with their situation. We’ll measure and monitor their stress levels and then follow their progress as experts work with them to help them to deal with their stress and reduce it.

Students are often under pressure - juggling essays and assignments in college, clashing with parents, financial/accommodation difficulties, struggling to cope with social media addiction. ‘Switching off’ is sometimes not an option. Trying to find a balance is a regular challenge.

If you are interested in getting some help to deal with your stress and want to know more about participating in the series, please fill in the form below or contact [email protected]


Tubs isn't involved by the way, so those of you only interested in doing this to meet the Late Late Show host, you've come to the wrong place.
