A new health show for the Discovery Channel is hoping to raise awareness of a wide variety of medical conditions in order for viewers to gain a clearer understanding of what it’s like to live with these conditions. The show will explore the symptoms associated with various medical conditions and how best to treat/manage them.
The programme makers are keen to speak to anyone with vitiligo. They stress that there’s absolutely no obligation for anyone who gets in touch to take part – they would just like to have an informal, friendly chat with anyone who’d like to tell their story.

New Medical Television Programme
Looking for People with Vitiligo
Optomen Television, the BAFTA award-winning producers of Mary Portas: Queen of Shops, Kevin McCloud’s Man Made Home and Heston Blumenthal’s Feast is producing a brand new TV medical series for the Discovery Network and we need your help.
In this series, we’ll be exploring a variety of health conditions in the hope that we can raise awareness on them. We’re looking for people with Vitiligo to take part in the programme to discuss their condition and to explain to others what it is like to live with it on a daily basis. By doing this, we’re hoping to raise general awareness on the condition, its symptoms and the types of treatment/care that is currently available.
We’ll also be working with a number of specialists throughout this series and, for those who take part in the programme, we can offer a free (off-screen) consultation with one of them. So perhaps you’d like a second opinion or advice on the types of treatments/care that is available to you?
For a no obligation, friendly and confidential chat with one of the team email email@example.com or call 0203 227 5993 leaving your name, age and telephone number
(ALL APPLICANTS MUST BE 18 OR OVER)
Please Note: We will use and store the personal details contained in your email and any further response in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, for the purposes of producing the Programme.
