Counting the Cost
DVD 23 Minutes
A programme to help young people appreciate the importance of managing their money.
There are five interviews designed to stimulate discussion. In the first Peter, aged 11, talks about savings accounts, pocket money, and what he buys. Then Melanie, aged 15, who has a part-time job, and likes to go out with her friends, says what she likes to spend on. Steven, 18, at university, talks about debts and overdrafts, Jenny, at work and living with her parents, runs a car, and is addicted to shopping, and finally Brian, 34, is facing bankruptcy, having overspent on a holiday and taken out loans.

Did I Say Hairdressing? I Meant Astrophysics
DVD 14 Minutes
Animated film encouraging women to take up careers in science, technology and engineering.
Another witty cartoon from Leeds Animation Workshop. Subverting themes from traditional stories, this entertaining and thought-provoking production helps to show why women are under-represented in science, engineering and technology. It illustrates the subtle and not so subtle gender type-casting which still often prevail, from babyhood right up to professional level; but by taking a positive, practical approach, it encourages women and girls to consider study and vocational training in these fields. A good discussion starter for anyone concerned with equal opportunities and related issues

Tell it like it is
DVD 12 Minutes
Animated film about people at school and the results of gender stereotyping and bullying.
A short animated film by Leeds Animation Workshop which illustrates problems faced by young people at school as a result of gender stereotyping and bullying. Classmates Darren and Sharon are each keeping a video diary. The results show them the different worlds girls and boys live in, and the different anxieties they experience. Although light in tone, the film raises awareness of male violence – verbal, psychological and physical – in school and in society. It aims to help young people understand and when necessary withstand social pressure, and stresses their ability to support each other, to help those who are being bullied and to challenge oppressive and abusive behaviour. Especially suitable for 11 – 15 year olds. Booklet also supplied
