Channel 5 viewers praise ‘important’ documentary on how to leave abusive partner in lockdown
An academic instrumental in raising awareness of male domestic abuse is conducting new research that focuses on older males who, according to initial findings, may experience abuse unique to their age. Dr Liz Bates of the University of Cumbria is best known for poignant research that shone a light on the previously little-known issue of female perpetrated male domestic violence. From a small sample previously collected, victims relayed experiences typical of domestic abuse, such as coercive control and physical aggression, however they also reported abuse unique to their older age.
Men reported that their partners were stopping them from seeing their adult children. However, awareness that domestic abuse can literally happen to anyone is rising and because of that Liz is undertaking this new research to raise awareness further and offer support to all who need it. News of this new study comes as the Government plans to revive the Domestic Abuse Bill with its first reading in Parliament this week.
The bill includes plans to introduce lie detectors for high risk abusers and enhanced measures to protect children of abuse victims. In light of this, Liz recently filmed a documentary on male domestic abuse for Channel 5.
The event will be open to professionals and practitioners, students, members of the public and researchers. Liz has also secured a slot running the Great North Run in aid of male domestic abuse charity, Mankind.
Alexander Gerald " Alex " Skeel born 17 August  is an English football coach, domestic violence survivor whose near-fatal abuse at the hands of his girlfriend, Jordan Worth born , attracted widespread media coverage owing to the extreme nature of the abuse. Worth controlled, beat, stabbed, starved and tortured Skeel, leaving him with severed tendons, fluid on the brain and burns. She also prevented him from receiving medical treatment for injuries she inflicted. Worth became the first woman to be convicted of the United Kingdom's coercive control offence and in was jailed for a total of seven and half years for her crimes.
Shot over 12 months, and starting from the moment a call is received, the film follows three brave women who each waive their right to anonymity to show how insidious and terrifying domestic abuse can be. The complex emotions involved when someone you love becomes violent are also exposed, and the difficulties for police when those feelings mean victims are not completely honest. With an unfolding, present tense narrative, the film also exposes the lack of consistency in terms of the length of sentence given to offenders. When the Police repeatedly take one perpetrator to court only to have magistrates release him again and again, the film demonstrates how the huge ordeal of going to court for these victims of domestic abuse does not mean that, in their eyes, justice will automatically follow. Meet Jemma, a year-old mother of two, who suffered a vicious attack from a former boyfriend, after going out with friends.
