The Kids are Okay is a unit of the BBC schools TV series Scene from the 1980s, covering citizenship for secondary school pupils.

A two-part play about two teenage children whose parents' marriage is breaking apart. Kenny and Jill are both, in their own ways, distracted and doing poorly at school. When they come home they see their parents arguing, and overhear their mother crying at night, but they have difficulty talking about it with each other.

The second episode is set a year later, after the father has left home and everybody seems to have settled down. The children spend weekends with their father, but things become strained when he introduces his new friend Doreen.


Written by Jack Ronder


Also broadcast for a general audience, in the evening on BBC2 in January 1983.
