Am I Normal?

LIVING CHANNEL – Thursday 22 July, 9.30pm

Am I Normal? is a four part documentary series on human behaviour presented by clinical psychologist Dr Tanya Byron. Each episode takes a sometimes controversial glance at people who choose to play with the boundaries of what society calls normal. Four key subjects are looked at: body image, spirituality, sex and addiction. Why will some people risk everything to look a certain way?

Why is there such a fine line between religious devotion and psychiatric disorder?

What drives our addictions? Why do we judge some expressions of sexual desire as eccentric but within normal bounds, and condemn others as repugnant and dangerous? These are some of the questions answered in Am I Normal?
