A documentary about 14-year-old Julie Cook, who ran away from her home in Swansea and lived in London for two months. The programme was recorded a month after Julie returned home.

From the teacher's notes

The programme was repeated for several years after it was made: "We are repeating this film again, because although shot 6 years ago, the situation in London is, if anything, worse. Accommodation and work is even more difficult to find than in 1974.

"In 1978, Julie's mother died after a short illness. Julie and her father are happy that this film should be repeated because they hope it will help young people discuss their problems before they take such drastic action as running away." - Scene teacher's notes autumn 1980 p.8.
