Coins Against The Wall is an episode of the BBC schools TV series Scene from the 1980s, covering citizenship for secondary school pupils.

A play about bullying, asking whether anything can actually be done about it. A gang of boys engage David in a game of 'coins against the wall' every day at school, a game for which David needs a daily supply of money, and which he inevitably loses. When he doesn't have money he truants from school, and eventually steals money from home.
