Globacom has continued to run its didactic television drama series, Professor Johnbull. The latest episode of the series takes viewers on an interesting voyage on the significance of high moral standards.

The episode aptly titled "No Help" encapsulates the factors responsible for the dearth of help in the society and why many are unwilling to be their brothers' keepers.

The first airing was at 8.30 p.m. on Tuesday on NTA Network, NTA International on DSTV Chanel 251 and NTA on StarTimes, while the repeat edition will run on Friday at 8.30 p.m. on the same stations.

Cast in the setting of pure satire, the conscience of the sitcom and lead character in the Series, Professor Johnbull, played by a veteran of Nollywood, Kanayo O. Kanayo, stresses the consequences of paying good with evil.

Announcing the new episode in Lagos, Globacom said in a statement that "No Help" is an episode which dramatises the unpleasant experiences many good Samaritans have suffered in the hands of people who lack natural sense of gratitude. "Sadly enough, it is the society that suffers ultimately as any act of ingratitude, no matter how little, is capable of dissuading others from rendering help and assistance even to those who would have appreciated such help.

"The saying that one soiled finger soils others is as witty as it is educating and this is why individuals should be very careful about their attitudes so that one person's mistakes will not rub-off on millions of others.

"No Help" is a must-watch for anyone who cares about the dearth of help in the contemporary society as the episode situates the problem properly, calling attention to acceptable behaviours for the good of the public", the statement added.
