Running Scared

EYEBROW RAISING (and, at the Beeb, hackles raising) gritty children’s serial, ramming home the titular message with an opening credit double-whammy of Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’ and a Nike-obsessed tracking camera ‘running’ shot. CHRISTOPHER “Burnside” ELLISON provided the gangster menace, dispensing assorted blackmail, racialism and bullying plots to JULIA MILLBANK’s young girl Paula Prescott. Grim and, at times, shocking stuff for 5.10pm on a Wednesday.
