Cult series
13 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A very important series of the early 1980s- never repeated or feted by the BBC but remembered by all who saw it. Compulsive viewing to find out the contrasting fates of Johnny and Alan.

Check out the clips on Youtube, particularly Johnny in short-lived skinhead phase and the catchy theme tune.

Excellent acting throughout by the leads who were seldom seen again on TV. Their portrayal of growing from youths to men grew ever more realistic as he series went on, Mark Farmer delivering a tour de force of the tragedy of growing up young in Thatcher's Britain looking for work, direction , anything !
