The trials and tribulations of young black youths in troubled early eighties London

This racial drama was produced by the National Film Finance Corporation and is now regarded as a classic of the genre. There are some scenes filmed within the viaduct arches of Edward Place, Deptford, and BR blue-liveried EPB units pass overhead. Another scene filmed at the junction of Atlantic Road with Electric Avenue in Brixton shows a similar unit passing. There is also a scene filmed at Finsbury Park Underground station with 1973-built tube stock arriving in the Northbound Piccadilly Line platform. This is followed by short scenes filmed onboard a similar unit and a shot of escalators at an unknown Underground station. This is not Finsbury Park as although the station is a ‘deep-level’ tube station, it has neither lifts nor escalators as its lines are less than 20’ (6.1 m) below street level.
