Excellent. Truly brilliant masterpiece.
27 September 2002 | by (South London, England) – See all my reviews

This excellent program should have been extended and become a film instead. It would have done brilliantly. It was an indie program and therefore, the camerawork wasn't exactly at its best. But that doesnt matter at all, when the plot, characters and acting is SUPERB.

This film totally and truly sums up the life of youngsters on Britain's streets in 2002. With the ever-present news of rising crime in the UK these days, this film gives a true picture of life in Britain. The real eye-opener was the actual youth instituition itself.

A bully boy inmate torments a young 15 yr old, who becomes psychologically affected. It will make you sometimes laugh, with very memorable quotes, one including: "Newboy, come to your window and sing me ba ba black sheep!" watch it, and you will understand. But from laughter, it will bring you tears as well. Gauranteed.

Definitely one to watch. Every British person should watch it.
