The depiction of young cancer patients in the first season of the VOX series “Club der roten Bänder [Red Band Society]”, aired in November/December 2015 and rerun in October/November 2016, was analysed with a sequence analytic approach. The exploration focuses on the following key questions which will be captured by theoretically generated categories:
- How are different aspects of cancer of young patients depicted in the series?
- How do people deal with cancer in this series?
- How is the confrontation with age-specific development issues of young cancer patients depicted?
