Role Modelling

15 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 12 February 2014

Anne-Marie Imafidon argues that we need to think differently about role models. She believes we need to stop looking at them as superhuman and instead embrace their mistakes as well as their successes, their personal foibles as well as their strengths. Once we do that, we can understand that everyone has something to contribute, we can all be members of what she calls the 'role model club'.

Presented by David Baddiel.

Producer: Giles Edwards.
