Region 2 DVD (may not be viewable outside Europe).


From the pen of acclaimed Liverpool writer Willy Russell (Educating Rita, Shirley Valentine) comes an engaging drama about class and happiness. Billy (David Morrissey - Basic Instinct II, The Deal, Blackpool) and Icky (Spencer Leigh - Strapless, The Garden) are two deprived, dead-end street-corner kids trying to rediscover an all-to-brief spell of contentment in Wales. One Summer was first transmitted on Channel 4 in 1983 and chronicles how two hard-bitten youngsters are affected by the people, their surroundings and the attitudes they encounter.
