Two dramatised scenes of family conflict show a daughter arguing with her father about her appearance, and the time that she has to come home from a dance. After each scene there is a discussion between a group of teenagers and a psychiatrist, Dr Martin Gay, about how these situations like this can be handled.

From the teacher's notes

"The purpose of this programme is to cause pupils to think about and discuss the reasons behind normal family arguments.

"Most adolescents experience some difficulties in relationships with their families as part of the process of growing up. Conflict or argument can in itself be stimulating and even constructive if it results in new understanding. Unfortunately this is often not the case, and in many families an argument can result in parents and children becoming rreinforced in their own prejudices. Clearly there are many different reasons fpr family arguments. But one of the most frequent is the adolescent;s determination to assert his independence." - Scene teacher's notes autumn 1977 p.16
