Multi-award-winning Dragonfly Film and TV, the makers of Ambulance and Surgeons: At The Edge of Life, are looking for small and medium businesses in serious financial difficulty to take part in a new series for the BBC.

The series wants to shine a light on the issues that SMEs are confronting, including inflation, the cost-of-living crisis, energy price hikes, supply-chain issues, higher interest rates and the repayment of bounce-back loans.

Bira, the British Independent Retailers Association, says it hopes these businesses are not only given an important voice but that in sharing their stories they can empower and educate others who may be in a similar situation or in danger of being so.
