Paul van Riebeck:
The award-winning film about a lonely boy.
'J.T.' is a boy who has only two companions: a stray cat and a portable radio. The story of 'J.T.' and his struggle for survival won the hearts of everyone who saw this CBS film. It is shown on BBC Television today because it is a story that reflects much of what Christmas is all about in 1970.
The part of 'J.T.' is played by Kevin Hooks.
