vicar of dibley

Extracts from this document...


In class today we watched the first ever series of Vicar of Dibley. Vicar of Dibley is a television drama. The first ever series was broadcasted in 1994.the Vicar of Dibley is a comedy drama. The main issue in this drama was sexism. Can there be female vicars?? The answer varies as different people have different believes and thoughts. This is a summary of what happened. This drama is set in a typical old English parish church. During a service the old and fragile vicar called Pottle dies. The Parish Council looked back in time and remembered Pottle. The villagers of Dibley gathered together to greet their new vicar. They all expect a male vicar to arrive with some good sense of humour, in tune with the youth and confident. Before Pottle died hardly anyone attended the church services. ...read more.


He strongly believes that there shouldn't be any, not in his village. Owen walks in late into the parish church, when he is introduced to Geraldine he says, "No she isn't...she's a woman," This shows that he is sexist, and doesn't approve that there can be woman vicars. "That's the whole point. She's not a chap!" replied David to Hugo when he mentioned that she is a good chap. "He was a man so it doesn't matter!" says David referring to their old vicar Pottle. "Its Matthew, Mark, Luke and John not Tara, Stacey...!"The strong comments which David made were clearly sexist comments. He wasn't giving Geraldine a chance to prove herself. Geraldine isn't what they expect; she's non tradional and loves chocolate. She's friendly and laid back. Geraldine makes an impression on everyone. She refers Sunday services to 'gigs' when she speaks to Alice the next morning when visiting the church. ...read more.


Geraldine is a person that understands old fashioned of the parishioners and likes people who are loyal. The problem in this television drama is that a new female vicar had just arrived. Some Christians have strong opinions and believes if there should be female vicars. The problem was dealt in this episode by letting her have a chance to prove herself that she can do what a normal male vicar can do. She wants to prove that there could be female vicars. To her surprise the parish council let her at the Sunday Service. I think that anyone can enjoy the Vicar of Dibley because it is a television drama as well as a comedy drama. It is funny and amusing to watch. The target audience I think is adults, senior adults mainly. I think children might not enjoy the drama because they might find it boring. Other people might not enjoy it because they might not be religious and wouldn't like to watch the drama. ?? ?? ?? ?? Abby Kailayapillai 10/50 ...read more.

    To win a revolution, one clearly needs numbers on their side. Thus at this stage, the factor that facilitated the wide distribution of Luther's text was the printing press, which quickly turned his traditional appeal for a debate into an appeal to the people, and propelled all of this new knowledge into the hands of the masses.

Although Ibo culture strongly emphasizes relatively democratic values, Okonkwo is not happy with their decision to keep the peace.
