mischief: super slim me


Dawn Porter embarks on an all consuming quest to get down from a UK size 12 to a super slim US size zero. While surviving on a diet of just 500 calories a day she tracks down the stylists, designers and agencies responsible for making thin appear not only attainable but the must-get goal for any dedicated follower of fashion. The first British documentary to explore the size zero phenomenon, Super Slim Me premiered on BBC Three and was subsequently repeated at 21:00 on BBC2. Having now reached over 7-million viewers, it is the most successful episode of Mischief ever.

“An engaging and ultimately serious look at a dangerous trend.”
The Observer

Filmed, produced and directed by Lee Phillips for the BBC.
