  • Teenage Danny has difficulty coping with life in the young offenders unit. His sister visits him and tells him she has had enough of his behaviour. Danny shouts and is taken away by officers. He goes back to his cell to find it has been turned over. His friend Kevin is there and looks very upset. Danny is still working on the farm and is learning more about the pigs, and saving food for them as treats – he checks to make sure the saved food is still there. Danny later returns to the cell to find that Kevin has hung himself. He then attacks the bullies and is taken away by officers again. This film was shot at Feltham Young Offenders Institute. All identifiable young offenders are played by actors. The first BBC broadcast of the programme was in 1993.
