A film on Forensic Nurses who assist victims of sexual crimes in South Africa, through counselling, physical examinations and testifying against perpetrators.

This film was made with support from One World Media.

It was shortlisted for a One World Media Award 2017. 

It has won the Steve Harris Award for Best Original Story at the Broadcast Journalism Training Council Awards 2017.

Young, Black and Not Voting


 
 

A growing number of young people in the UK are becoming less and less interested in political matters. 

With the EU Referendum around the corner, it’s predicted that the turnout of voters will be an imbalanced representation of the UK’s population. 

Only less than half of 18-25s are predicted to turn up to the polls, even though they will be most affected by Britain’s decision to remain in or leave the EU. 

Women of an ethnic minority group are also less likely to vote, so as a young lady of African descent myself, "statistically" I fall into the category of non-voters, but I did vote in the 2015 elections and am already registered to vote in the referendum. 

In this short documentary, I spent the day with a group of young people and experts to figure out why all this is so, and what can be done about it.
