A Festive BBC Idea
BBC Ideas is an exciting short-form digital video project from the BBC. The films are thought-provoking and aim to challenge and inform the audience, while presenting ideas in a digital-friendly and accessible way. Chocolate Films pitched and won the production of a short film about stag dos and hen parties.
Stags And Hens
When you think about it, stag dos and hen parties are pretty weird – full of crazy fancy dress, and mad games. So why do we have them? The tradition was first recorded in Ancient Greece. By all accounts they remained relatively tame affairs until the ‘60s and the sexual revolution. What is the psychology behind stag dos and hen parties, why have they endured for so long and how did they evolve? Find out in this film by the Chocolate Films Glasgow team.
