Hi,

My name's Jazz and I'm a researcher at Blast films, an award winning independent production company based in London.

We're currently producing a landmark documentary series about the extraordinary life of Jade Goody for channel 4.

As we all know Jade's life was extensively covered by the press and that's where I'm hoping someone might be able to help...

We're on the lookout for Jade on the front covers of glossy magazines such as Heat, Closer, Now between 2002-2006. If anyone was a big Jade fan or maybe knows of someone with an archive of back issues please get in touch!

Thanks for reading!

Who was Jade Goody - and why should anyone be interested in her?


Cervical-cancer awareness
The day of Goody's funeral, a spokeswoman for Cancer Research UK said:[102]
Jade's story has raised awareness of cervical cancer which has led to hundreds of thousands of people contacting Cancer Research UK for information on the disease as the number of hits to our website, CancerHelp.org shows. Her legacy will be to help save lives.

In October 2009 it was reported that the number of women between 25 and 64 having Pap tests in the United Kingdom had grown by 12 percent during the previous year, an increase (after year-to-year declines since 2002) credited to Goody's public battle with cervical cancer. Sky News health correspondent Thomas Moore said:[103]

This is a tremendous flip for the NHS screening programme. Jade Goody had a particular impact on the women the NHS struggles to reach – the young and the less well educated. The challenge for public health doctors now is to ensure that this rise is sustained, so that Jade has a long-lasting legacy.

According to Health Secretary Andy Burnham, "Jade's bravery and openness in her fight against cervical cancer has brought home to young women across the country the importance of regularly going for these checks."[103] Gordon Brown said, "Her family can be extremely proud of the work she has done to raise awareness of cervical cancer which will benefit thousands of women across the UK

I'm not a fan of reality TV but it changed her life and enabled her to give her children better chances (when they were born).

She was born and bred in Bemondsey which is why I imagine Jazz popped up on here.

Jade Goody lived in Southwark (SE16) with her mother Jackie, she became famous when she appeared onBig Brother. Died to cervical cancer (as posted above).

I used to work in the NHS, in cancer screening. We would talk about the ‘Jade Goody effect’ after her openness helped so many people overcome what was still at the time a massive stigma about cervical cancer.

Have to say I never liked Jade Goody as a celebrity (didn't know her privately) but after she became ill I always felt that she handled it in a very dignified way and am glad to hear that the fact she was in the public eye so much helped make such a contribution to the fight against cervical cancer. Can't help with Jazz's request though, I'm afraid.

I'd usually try the British Library or the Ashmolean for an archive of important publications. Or the original publisher.

I have spent many hours at the British Newspaper Library in Colindale, researching publications to be eventually used in the documentaries I was working on.

However, they shut down in 2013, so the way way to perform an archival search of British publications is via Brightsolid's website.

As a caveat, please note that their service is patchy to say the least: not all of their holdings have been digitised.

There is a subscription cost involved, unless the researcher chooses to go to the British Library in St Pancras and perform it there on one of their terminals.
