Our primary aim is to produce a major new television series and global video stream about Happiness and Wellbeing.
We have written and produced a number of script outlines and film treatments that tell the story of Happiness and Wellbeing. A synopsis of these are outlined below. For more details contact gerry@worldhappinessTVproject.org
Working Title: HOW TO BE HAPPY
An informative and entertaining series of programmes about what makes us happy and how we can achieve greater happiness in life. Featuring interviews and discussions with a variety of global politicians, academic experts, famous celebrities and sports stars who are known for their happy disposition and lifestyle. The series touches upon all aspects of happiness, including philosophy, history and importance as well as introducing practical methods of achieving happiness in our everyday lives.
The series has universal appeal and answers fundamental questions such as:
- What are the main causes of happiness? Will more money make you happier?
- Can a person become happier through their own efforts?
- What are the most important actions we can take to secure a happy life?
For an example of what this programme will look like, see a clip from the Dalai Lama’s Guide to Happiness at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUEkDc_LfKQ
Working Title: THE SECRETS OF HAPPINESS
A concept based on the successful “Truth about…….” television series
This programme series introduces a group of celebrities and individuals from across the UK who find it difficult to be happy due to issues such as emotional/physical health, family and friends, lifestyle choices, etc We develop a series of tests for happiness based on latest scientific principles and measurement, creating a Happiness research lab to present the results and interview leading scientists and psychologists who evaluate the results and provide practical comment.
The Secrets of Happiness yield numerous rewards for the individual and make for a better, healthier, stronger society.
Working Title: THE KEYS TO THE NATION’S HAPPINESS
Based on the Action For Happiness Exploring What Matters courses and the growing network of Happy Cafes.
The programme introduces why happiness is important. Most people believe that happiness is a meaningful, desirable and worthwhile goal and is one of the most pleasing dimensions of human experience and emotional life.
The programme follows a group of individuals who attend an Experiencing What Matters course in the UK where they learn about GREAT DREAM – the Ten Keys to happier living. They go on to join a Happy Cafe Group and practise what they have learned, finding happiness in many unexpected ways. We explore the practical steps that people can take to increase their happiness and well being. A sort of personal makeover programme for the new 20’s decade.
