8 & 9!!!!!!!!!!!!! No way would I want to do the issueslike sex, abortion, homosexuality in the depth I do with year 10s with a year 8 and 9 group. Good grief. What do they then do in years 10 & 11? Re programmes that's a tricky one - I would maybe avoid a film with arating altogether and find a TV proframmew ith a suitable clip on it instead. I think I read the other day in my TV magazine that one of the soaps is going to do something on euthansia. There was the episode of casualty recently when a Jehovah's Witness refused blood and then changed their mind at the last minute. Something like that might be more appropriate.
