Hollyoaks Presentation

  1. 1. Hollyoaks – Channel 4<br />This is a popular well known teenage drama, from channel 4, that is watched by many teenagers and influences them. Therefore it has a responsibility to show interactions and social situations and how they are able to be dealt with. Within this Hollyoaks has faced the issues of disability by having 2 characters with disabilities and how they cope with everyday life and the abuse they can be subjected too just for being classed as different. <br />Hollyoaks use everyday problems that happen to help the viewers grasp the pain they can be put through and to show the young viewers that they are the same as them. Hollyoaks is helping the youth of today create a more inclusive society. <br />
  2. 2. Haley Ramsey <br />Played By Kelly-Marie Stewart<br />Hayley has an older brother who is over-protective and worries about her mainly cause of her disability <br />She had to make her former boyfriend Reece overcome his fear of her disability before he would date her because he didn’t know how to act with her.<br />Haley is a wheelchair bound girl that has no problem dealing with her disability herself and is out to prove how competent she is.<br />A strong character like Haley is a good person to look up to as she is strong confident and doesn’t let her disability control her.<br />She is a fantastic singer and tried to be in a band with 2 of the lads from the show – she got victimised because she was in a wheel chair and was not going to cut it in the music industry just because of this. Hollyoaks has clearly used this to show how although we attempt to be an inclusive society, when it comes to music it is all about selling yourself rather then just if you have a good voice.<br />
  3. 3. Spencer Gray<br />Played By Darren Langford<br />He struggles to fit in with other people his age as he doesn’t know how to behave in social situations.<br />People get stressed with the character as he is slow and gets in the way easily.<br />Spencer is the brother of the drama’s gangster character and shows this characters soft side when it comes to his brother. He is other protective though and worry’s about his inability’s.<br />Now his brother has died he has taken over his businesses and doesn’t really know how to cope with the general run of things. However he still wants to have control and wont let all the people try and take over just because they know how to do it as he wants to do it for his brother.<br />
  4. 4. Both Spencer and Hayley represent the two ends of coping with disabilities. Hayley is co-dependant and can look after herself making sure everyone around her knows that her chair just makes her more confident where as Spencer is always dependent on other people and when he does try and do things alone he just causes problems and makes things worse. <br />Hollyoaks uses both these situations to help make there series be more realistic as disability is something that is in everyday life and shouldn’t be dismissed when it is an important part. Hollyoaks is helping to create a more inclusive society and stop the bullying and exclusion that a disability can cause for a person.<br />
