What can TV teach L&D? Ep. 2 – It’s a Sin

Here is a transcript of Ep.2 – It’s a Sin.

Hi everyone, my name’s Tom Hickmore and in this episode of “What can TV teach L&D?” I’m looking at It’s a Sin.

It’s a Sin is Channel Four’s drama series about the coming of AIDS to the UK told through the experience of a group of young gay men and their woman friend.  This is an issue drama, and most learning and development drama is issue drama, to there’s a lot we can learn here.

This drama isn’t a simple hero’s journey, although there is one character who’s more central than the rest.  We follow the story of several young men.  So, it’s more of a collective hero.  But the unifying element to the whole story, is the story of the disease – the issue.
