An absolutely vital conversation.

Recently Coronation Street ran a vital storyline, focused on hate crime against alternative sub-cultures.

The story was linked to the experiences of Sophie Lancaster with the show working with her mum Sylvia and the Sophie Lancaster Foundation to ensure it was done sensitively.

To delve deeper into the themes and feelings around the story, a documentary has been released which is presented by Bury Tomorrow's Dani Winter-Bates. He also wrote the premise for the documentary and wrote the spoken words passages throughout it.

Dani combines his own experiences as a member of the alternative community and his work with the NHS to bring together the actors from the shows who played out the story and let them share their own thoughts and lessons.

It's a vital and touching take on a story that needed to be told. It's also a subject matter that still needs more attention even now.
