semi-autobiographical series
13 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This series was shown on the, then, new Welsh channel 4 and is one of the best TV series I've ever seen. It's about a boy growing up in North Wales during the war and I believe it is semi-autobiographical. I wish it was available to buy on DVD. In my favourite episode Joni accidentally swallows some chewing gum obtained from some Americal G.I.'s and his friends tell him he will die. He writes a Will bequeathing his meagre possessions but is very relieved to wake up the following morning. In another episode he covets a football in a shop window but hasn't any money so has to make do with a bundle of rags. Whilst his mother is collecting money for the war effort savings club he steals a coin from an elderly lady but his conscience gets the better of him. In the last series Joni is sent by train to an English boarding school in Shrewsbury where he is very homesick and writes letters to his mother pleading to come home.
