One Summer

WILLY RUSSELL-PENNED did-you-see-that-on-the-telly-last-night? playground-bothering Channel 4 play about two scouse kids Billy and Icky (DAVID MORRISSEY, SPENCER LEIGH) running off to go camping in Wales, only to be befriended by a shifty school teacher. Awkward developing relationship between the protagonists leads to much jealously and swearing, culminating in a spot of road rage on a narrow bridge.

    A classic from the early and best days of Channel 4, but not that well remembered now. Best episode has to be the first one which shows you how grim life was for Liverpool’s poor in the early 80s, and why Billy and Icky wanted to escape, esp Billy, whose mother only seemed interested in blowing the social security on bingo.
