Scum Trailer (1979)

"The film they tried to ban! A brutal story of today." 12 September 1979 Drama, Crime 98 mins

This is the hard and shocking story of life in a British Borstal for young offenders. The brutal regime made no attempt to reform or improve the inmates and actively encouraged a power struggle between the 'tough' new inmate and the 'old hands'. The film was originally made as a BBC play but it was banned before ever being shown.
