Learning life lessons from Soap Operas

31 March 2017

In September last year, Kate Adams delivered a TED talk called 4 larger-than-life lessons from soap operas. She used her coveted time on the TED stage to explain how soap operas, whilst sometimes overly-dramatic, can teach us valuable life lessons and enable us to ‘start living bigger and craft our own life stories’. This was an American take on the influence soap operas can have so we wanted to see if this idea transitioned to the UK and if the general public believe they can learn any life lessons from watching their favourite soaps.
