Sex and Common Sense
The awareness of sex in children starts innocently enough. The questions they ask at an early age can be dealt with simply enough. It is as they reach adolescence that their problems grow and the questions that they then ask are more difficult - the answers more likely to become a matter of controversy.
The battle for sex education in schools has, for 30 years or more, nearly always been a matter of fierce controversy and debate.
A recent film made by Dr Martin Cole became the subject of a national row. He appears in tonight's Man Alive with adolescents, parents, teachers and educationalists who come together to debate just how much children need to know; should be told; by whom; and at what age.

About this project
This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed
in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC
programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.
We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC
programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement
with the BBC.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
