"The 1000 Words About Tracy" is the 8th episode in Series 1 of The Story of Tracy Beaker and the 8th episode overall. It aired on January 31, 2002.


Cam makes a return visit to the home to interview Tracy for her article. When Tracy is talking to Cam, she tries to talk her into looking for her mum. Cam agrees, and is furious with herself when Jenny tells her that Tracy's mum already knows where she is, and doesn't want to get in touch. Tracy is upset and angry, but later forgives Cam, and they agree to meet up again.

Meanwhile, Cam asks Justine and Louise to make a docu-soap about life in the home. They start to make one, until Ryan points out that they could make a more interesting film and make money with it. They set up a situation with excitable Maxy, who slips in the kitchen and pulls lots of things down on him, while Justine films.

The staff are furious, but the kids are elated to have made a funny film – until they realise that Justine forgot to turn the camera on. Zac discovers that they still have entertaining footage of Justine falling over when they were making the docu-soap.
