Media, Racism and Safe Sex

Season 1 Episode 2


“…..when you watch anything from South Africa its 16 die in whatever robbery, and in the media you always hear South Africa’s a ship going down with no lights because of Eskom. Its all the negative stuff, you never hear about the kid who saved the old man drowning….when it’s the bad things they know the paper’s gonna sell”

Teens are hardly ever noted for their wisdom, but there are exceptions to every rule. Meet these 9 students from Camps Bay High School in Cape Town. They share their profound insights on Media and its influence, racism and the Apartheid legacy and their feelings about growing up in a country in transition.
