One Summer
  • Description

    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.

    Disc One

    Episode One

    Two fifteen-year-old Liverpool truants rediscover school and pin their hopes on a trip to the school summer camp. Their hopes are dashed, but fate, broken probation and a small bingo win soon have Billy and Icky boarding a train and heading for unknown territory.

    Episode Two

    Their journey illustrates to Billy and Icky the difference between Liverpool and Wales, if only in the geographical sense. They find however, that even in the expanse of the Welsh countryside, the territory cannot be theirs and they are still not wanted.

    Episode Three

    Billy and Icky find a suitably run down cottage which they can adopt as home but first they have to convince the owner that they are trustworthy. They are not helped by local youths who attempt to wreck the cottage, and the handywork looks like their own.

    Disc Two

    Episode Four

    Billy is coming to terms with the relaxed Welsh lifestyle. Icky is not too sure. Some of the Liverpool gang visit - showing how precarious the new lifestyle is. Billy discovers romance.

    Episode Five

    Icky is more convinced that Billy is never going to return to Liverpool and decides to make the trip on his own. Billy prefers to remain with his new found romance but the idyllic summer seems to be over.
