  • Mentorn Media's documentary for BBC Three, I Can't Stop Stealing will be broadcast on August 26th, it was announced today.

    Britain was top of Europe's league for shoplifting last year with an item being stolen from a UK store every minute. For many nicking something is a one off teenage rite of passage or a way to feed their drugs habit, but for some it becomes an addiction in itself.

    This programme meets three people who have all battled with the urge to shoplift, following their stories as they reveal why they did it, the buzz they got from, the impact it's had on their lives and how they kicked the habit.

    We also meet the people whose job it is to stop them getting away with it in a cat and mouse game where each side thinks they can outwit the other. Shoplifting carries a maximum prison sentence of seven years and retailers spend millions of pounds on high tech surveillance equipment yet people continue to brazenly steal from shops.

  • Mentorn Media's documentary, Madness in the Fast Lane, attracted a strong audience of 3.34 million last night and a 23.2% share. The show was above slot average and beat all other terrestrials in the late evening slot.

    Last year in an episode of BBC One's Motorway Cops, viewers saw terrifying film of two people rushing headlong across the M6 and careering into oncoming traffic in an apparently random incident. Just as astonishingly, they both survived.

    The programme last night revealed the extraordinary circumstances in which two Swedish sisters threw themselves into oncoming traffic on the M6 and revealed that this was only the start of a real-life horror story.

    With unseen footage, dramatic reconstruction and first-hand witness accounts, it gave an account of the ensuing nightmare.
