It took the usual format of:
1) a comedy sketch
2) a depressing report on poverty etc
3) repeat 1 & 2
The reports were particularly depressing with celebrity after celebrity publicising the plight of the less fortunate both in the UK and the third world.
Take one example of a woman in Africa who was looking after 13 kids. 3 were her own whilst the other 10 were her two sister’s children. Both sisters had died of AIDS. 3 of the children also had AIDS. The family of 14 slept in a single ‘tin roof’ hut with half of the children sleeping on the floor on a plastic sheet. The slum that they lived in had open sewers running through it.
It makes me realise not only how lucky I am (and the majority of people in the developed world) but also how insignificant any problems I might have actually are in the big scheme of things.
