Race And Medical Experiments : What’s The Truth ? | Channel 4 31 January 10:00pm

Junior Bake Off | Channel 4 28 January 5:00pm

Even before the Covid vaccine was available in Britain, America and beyond, there was a clear gap in the willingness to take it between the general population and some of those from ethnic minorities. Presenter Seyi Rhodes is vaccinated, but at first his mum was hesitant to do the same. In this eye-opening film, Seyi sets out to discover the links between such vaccine hesitancy and a toxic history of racially charged experiments contributing to a mistrust of medical science. One of the most commonly cited examples is in Tuskegee in Alabama. Seyi travels there to discover the legacy of a notorious syphilis study where African-American men were denied treatment and simply observed as their disease progressed. He uncovers another case where a 19th-century gynaecologist perfected his surgical technique on enslaved women, without anaesthetic. Seyi learns that the British also ran experiments to see how mustard gas affected Indian skin. And even the US hunt to find Bin Laden used a fake vaccine programme to obtain DNA samples from his hideout. Seyi learns the uncomfortable truth that online anti-vaxxers are using links in history to make people question whether or not to take the Covid vaccine today. But Seyi is inspired when he meets Professor Stephen Thomas, an African-American public health pioneer with a mission: to acknowledge the damaging past in order to win back trust. Backed by President Biden, he’s turned 1000 barbershops into places where vaccine-hesitant people talk and listen, and if they want to, even get the vaccine after their hair cut!

Troy Deeney : Black History Matters Too | Channel 4 23 May 2022

Troy Deeney : Black History Matters Too | Channel 4
Footballer and current Birmingham City FC captain Troy Deeney has been campaigning to make the teaching of Black, Asian and minority ethnic histories and experiences mandatory in the school curriculum. He was at the forefront of the movement to get sportspeople to ‘take the knee’ in the wake of the murder of George Floyd, and is a prominent anti-racism campaigner. He believes passionately that education is a vital way not only to inform identities, but also to combat racist beliefs and stereotypes. But Troy has found himself frustrated in recent years by the lack of progress in getting the issue of what young people are taught in school – and how they are taught it – to the top of the agenda. In this eye-opening documentary, Troy sets out on a mission to find out why the teaching of diversity in our schools remains optional, and strives to change this. Troy meets people on both sides of the debate, and talks about his own troubled school experiences, inspiring support from prominent contributors such as boxer Anthony Joshua, actor David Harewood MBE, ex-footballer and pundit Micah Richards, musicians Big Narstie and DJ Cuppy and MP Layla Moran, as well as young activists, teachers and pupils campaigning for change. With an issue this important and divisive, it soon becomes clear to Troy that he’ll have to take his quest to the very top.
