Communications News: Bullying campaign sends graphic film to every UK school

The Anti-Bullying Alliance is to send a hard-hitting drama series to every secondary school in the UK to help children deal with drugs and gun-crime issues.

The alliance is led by the National Children's Bureau and comprises 50 national organisations including the Miss Foundation, which made the films with £360,000 of Home Office funding.

The Watch Over Me II series is set in a fictional school, but based on research of real events over the past year. The school's head is played by actress Lynda Bellingham, a patron of the charity.

The series also focuses on bereavement, domestic violence and forced marriages.

The films will be sent to schools this week along with a teaching resource pack.
