This week's episode of Globacom's didactic, yet humourous television drama series, Professor Johnbull, is dedicated to educating the public on the need to avoid needless mass panic.
The episode is called 100 Metres, and it ridicules a situation where people panic unjustifiably and begin to run just because they saw a few other people running, without finding out the cause of the panic.
Executive Producer of the Series said that, "100 Metres will address yet another vital issue in our day-to-day living as a people.” "At the end of the episode, the viewing public will be more educated on the reason why they should be more circumspect in joining the bandwagon of public panic without cause", added the statement.
It is a hilarious episode as it will, through use of comedy, expose the ripple effect of mass panic and the drama of people running without knowing why. Answers to the following questions will be provided: who ignited the panic? Why do people first run and ask questions later? Should people run without knowing their destinations? Will the 'infallible' Professor Johnbull fall victim to public panic?
Featuring in 100 Metres are Kanayo O. Kanayo, the lead act, Professor Johnbull; Flash (Stephen Odimgbe); Jumoke (Bidemi Kosoko); Olaniyi (Yomi Fash-Lanso); Churchill (Jnr. Pope Odonwodo); Elizabeth (Queen Nwokoye); Mai Doya (Funky Mallam); Samson (Ogus Baba) and Abednego (Martins Nebo).

The repeat broadcast of the episode will be aired at 8.30 p.m on Friday on the same TV stations.
