Must teenagers always quarrel with their parents? Do we do any harm by keeping them at school and prolonging their adolescence? How do New Guinea boys go about chatting-up the girls, and why do the girls of the Indian hills spend so much time singing and dancing? Are young people in this country more or less promiscuous than those elsewhere.

On Midsummer Day 1919 one of the most extraordinary episodes in the history of the sea took place in Scapa Flow, the famous anchorage in the Orkney Islands. Seventy-four ships of the German High Seas Fleet, at that time the world's second greatest navy, scuttled themselves in a calculated act of defiance.
Tonight's film sees this unique event through the eyes of three people who watched it happen, and one man who actively helped it to happen:
Mrs Rosetta Groundwater, William Waterson, Captain R. C. V. Ross, Vizeadmiral Friedrich Ruge
