Advantages: Real Life Insight In Todays Schools
I totally love watching this drama series on the BBC. It kinda reminds me of my school days oddly enough and gives me fond memories when i was a school girl. Actually some of the kids that star in this program are what i'd say similar to those girls whilst i was at school!. Funnily enough the program concentrates also on the teacher side rather than only the kids at the school, which slightly make the program some what different to Grange Hill in my opinion.
Waterloo Road is a comprehensive school which is set in Rochdale, Greater Manchester. The program is about trouble school kids dealing with teenage pregnancy, abortion and suicide and focuses also on the teachers which make it unique. With this in mind Waterloo Road focuses on the teachers complicated lives, divorces and other related issues. The episodes usually are about internal going ons in the school. There has been three series of Waterloo Road and the fourth series is currently airing now. The program usually starts with what happen previously in the episode and then resumes. I have watched all the series of Waterloo Road since it's launch back in 2006 as i am an avid fan of the series =).
I would recommend everyone to watch it, as not only does it give me fond memories but also gives you an insight of what happens in todays schools. Some of the episodes have been really good to watch and enjoyable and i am always wanting to watch the next episode when it is finished. I think that the program also engages the younger audience in dealing with social issues and bullying, as this is quite common in todays schools.
Waterloo Road is a brilliant program to watch. Some of the episodes has always been interesting to watch and kept me glued to the TV screen. I have recommended some of my friends to watch it, and now they love it. Most of the episodes featured in the program seems to be focusing on the real life issues and i think that this is quite useful for people watching. I would definitely recommend you to watch Waterloo Road.
Thanks For Reading =)
Summary: Highly Recommended!
