Screen Two: Safe

on BBC Two England

'If you don't sort out street kids in the first couple of months, you might as well write them off," a hostel worker comments in Al Ashton's thought-provoking love story set among the young homeless In London.
Winner of a Bafta award earlier this year for best single drama, the film also won two awards at the 1993 Edinburgh Film Festival, including one for director Antonia Bird (The Men's Room, Inspector Morse).
Kate Hardie and Aidan Gillen star as abused and neglected teenagers who fall prey to alcohol, drugs, begging and prostitution. Billy Bragg sings his own specially composed songs.
