'Employable Me': ABC TV show TRAILER + FULL SHOW link

The 'Employable Me' series is as breathtaking as it is honest and is the best TV I have seen in a very long time.

Okay, so I have an ulterior motive to watch this show: my son is autistic and is age 10, and I always like to imagine what he'd be like as a young adult, working and facing the sometimes cruel world we live in, and a society that is not so accepting of those who are, in the words of preeminent autistic professor and legend Temple Grandin: "different, not less."

Here is the trailer:

The show started on ABC TV on April 3 and is on Tuesdays at 8.30pm - the last ep is tonight, and I highly recommend you seek it out on IView.

Here is the link for you: https://iview.abc.net.au/programs/employable-me-australia

It's a three-part documentary series adapted from an English format which profiles nine people with disabilities trying to find a job – it is exceptional filmmaking and so moving and heartwarming.

Each episode follows three people on their job hunting journey.

People profiled have: autism, Tourette Syndrome, and obsessive compulsive disorder, and Fragile X syndrome.

The show presents a case for us all to look beyond people's conditions to see them for who they are: often gifted, vulnerable, endearing, wonderful, and, in this case, self aware of their conditions and lot in life.
