A documentary in which Metropolitan Police Officers give their reactions to the play Bank Holiday and describe how they see their relationship to young people.

From the teacher's notes

"Teachers may find it helpful to invite a member of the police to view the programme with the class and join in discussion afterwards." - Scene teacher's notes spring 1972 p.14

A quotation from a police officer speaking in the programme (and a spoiler for the ending of Bank Holiday): "'One of the most important things about police work is common-sense. The police in 'Bank Holiday' certainly didn't use theirs. No PC is going to turn round and say 'git'... it would be done in a more friendly way - 'in the morning pack it up and go on your way to another camp site.' If you're going to search, you ask. We may have the right to search but 99% of the time we will ask.'" - Scene teacher's notes spring 1973 p.6.
