Our challenge was to present this tricky subject in a way which is attractive to students who might otherwise run in the opposite direction. We created formats which the young target audience can relate to, such as animated sitcoms and computer games. We abstracted the many complex lessons so that they related to everyday contexts. The films have been praised for raising the bar for Bitesize in terms of content and production values.
