With sex education becoming mandatory in secondary schools in England from September 2020, the broadcaster is sending a cast of parents and their children back to the classroom.
Danny Dyer and his 11-year-old daughter Sunnie and Ulrika Jonsson and her teenage daughter Martha are among those taking part in three-part series, Let’s Talk About Sex.
Others sharing their candid opinions and fascinating anecdotes from their own personal experiences are Miriam Margolyes OBE, Stephen Mangan, Alastair and Grace Campbell, Phil Wang, London Hughes and Kieron Richardson.
The series from Spelthorne Community Television will take the most outrageous, unexpected and unintentionally hilarious sex education videos both past and present and show them to a diverse range of pupils and parents.
They’ll discuss what works and what doesn’t and what they think should be on the syllabus next year as they have some very frank conversations about what each of them knows about sex – no subject will be off limits.
“From September 2020 relationship and sex education will for the first time become mandatory for all school children in England. To coincide with this, next year the government plans to release new statutory guidance to replace the current “outdated” regulations last updated at the turn of the century in 2000. Using a wealth of video archive, this informative and entertaining series examines what young people have been taught to date an uncovers exactly what school children today do and don’t know about relationships and sex.” – Channel 4
Let’s Talk About Sex begins on Friday 5th April at 10pm on Channel 4.
