Told for the first time from the perspective of vloggers themselves, Rise Of The Superstar Vloggers (w/t) is a documentary that sees Jim Chapman meet the biggest and best vloggers from across the globe, including Tyler Oakley, Joe Sugg, Alfie Deyes and Ingrid Nilsen, to hear first-hand how this 21st century phenomenon has changed their lives.
As YouTube celebrates its 10th birthday, vloggers now dominate Most Influential lists across the globe, sell out stadiums and have the kind of fanbases boy bands would kill for. Even your mum has seen Zoella on Bake Off. Between them, Jim’s interviewees have generated more than six billion views of their content on YouTube.
Jim will look at the amazing highs vlogging has brought - from fame and international travel to product lines and red carpets - but also the difficulties, including waving goodbye to privacy. Collectively they’ll reveal what it’s like to grow up and go through everything the BBC Three audience is going through, under the spotlight of literally millions of fans sharing their every move.
Jim also meets those vlogging with a social purpose, including sex education, mental health and sexuality, and investigates the impact on viewers.
