The death of a factory owner signals a change for all of the staff, none more so than a sheet metal worker called Watson, who is denied a promised promotion and finds his position as the unofficial leader of the sheet metal workers challenged by Gregg, a new apprentice who joins the factory and isn't willing to follow the accepted order.

From the teacher's notes

"Ronald Eyre was the producer of BBC School TV Drama programmes in its early years. Since leaving the BBC he has had a distinguished career as a writer and director. In 1970 he directed Three Months Gone for the Royal Court Theatre and London Assurance for the Royal Shakespeare Company, both outstanding successes." - Scene teacher's notes spring 1971 p.10
