Today, teenage girls and young women are behaving worse than ever before. Figures from the UK show that girls under the age of 18 are committing nearly 40 per cent more crimes than they were in 2002/03 and are beginning to catch up with boys in their levels of violence and theft. Binge-drinking is at an all-time high and Britain continues to have the highest teen pregnancy figures in Western Europe. This two-part observational documentary series tells the stories of several girls from across the country, focusing on the real people behind some of the statistics. The appropriately titled How Not To Live Your Life follows on BBC2 at 11.20pm. Don meets a girl nine years his junior while working as a charity street collector. He hangs out with her and her friends, but discovers he is not the hip youngster he thought he was.
