From The Vaults Of Youtube #3

Although we look back dew-eyed about the classic Play For Today series, the BBC were starting to think it a bit "old hat" by the time the 80s came around - and tried to make it more "down with the kids". The result were plays like Three Minute Heroes.
It's set in Coventry in 1982, based around the youth cults of the day - mods, skins, two tone, punk etc. The story, watching it back now, is pretty poor - but the footage it provides of the day is pretty much essential.
Here's a short clip, with a black youth harassing a gang of mods at the multi-storey car park.
