Channel 4 is calling for short-form 'can't look away' journalism for its new YouTube documentary strand In Too Deep.

The strand launches today at 5pm, with Selling My Virginity, a 23-minute doc from Dare Pictures, in which Kiss FM DJ and presenter Daisy Maskell explores online auctions in which men bid huge sums for a young woman's virginity - by putting her own body up for sale.

C4 said films featuring in the strand will be between 15 and 25 miutes and will feature young and emerging journalists immersing themselves in difficult and sometimes dangerous environments with a mix of footage and hidden-camera filming.

Overseeing the strand are C4 digital commissioning executives Thomas Pullen and Caitrona White, with digital commissionine editor and senior operations lead Laura Marks.

Marks described In Too Deep's ethos as "‘can’t look away’ journalism that lifts the lid on stories that are uncomfortable, unflinching and hugely immersive for our audience".

Selling My Virginity was commissioned by Pullen and is executive produced by Ravinder Chahal. Maskell has previously presented Proper Content's BBC3 documentary Daisy Maskell: Insomnia and Me.
