The second of the series
Young people look at the world of adults
Introduced by Joan Bakewell
From the North
Producer Raymond Short writes: Young people have quick eyes and deep feelings. They see life clearly and respond to it intensely. The aim of this series is to look at life through their eyes. The means is their own self-expression-through creative writing, art, and song. In many schools throughout the country, young people are being encouraged to discover and express their personal vision of this world. In preparing this series I have read poems from some seventy-five schools, written over the past three or four years, seen some fascinating art, and heard some pointed songs.
Each programme is a brief anthology-a mixture of these three elements-chosen from a wealth of material. Each focuses on a different aspect of modern life-tonight, we look at the way young people write and feel about the adults who are part of their world.
