Storyline

In 1960's Bristol three lads hang around making nuisances of themselves after losing their motorbike licences. Their only other interest is playing rock-and-roll so they welcome the offer from a supportive churchwarden of the use of his church hall. Things go well - with several new members including strong-voiced Terry, sort-of one of their girlfriends, they don't sound bad at all - and one of the guys starts dating the churchwarden's daughter. But his mate is increasingly suspicious that they are being sucked into behaving in a conventional way acceptable to the older generation. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

"Blackboard Jungle" film with Kenneth More as an avuncular prelate with a selection of cardigans. A group of teenage motorcycle people lose their licence after an accident. Bored on a Friday night they end up in one of those dismal modernist 1960s churches playing on the organ. The name of the film is named after a well gay song they sing. About halfway through the producers run out of plot and go for an extended shopping trip and then for something to do some activities with the Princes Award or something. The film was sponsored by the tobacco industry and Coca-Cola.
