PSHE/Citizenship GCSE: Jordan's experience of drinking alcohol at 16

Jordan drank over half a bottle of neat brandy and it nearly killed him.

At the time, he set out just wanting to enjoy himself, but after his experience with alcohol, his attitude to drinking has changed significantly.

The effect of alcohol on Jordan is explored through scientific analysis and highlights how behaviour can change dramatically when drinking.

This is shown through interviews, reconstructions and scientific graphics.
