Dispatches : Britain's Yobs

Postby The_Boss » Sun Apr 23, 2006 11:28 pm

Hoodies, yobbos, happy-slapping and ASBOs. We're deluged with images of a teenage menace that appears to be sweeping Britain and which we're seemingly powerless to stop.

In this film Dispatches investigates why as a nation we've become increasingly intimidated by young people and why we won't intervene when we see someone being attacked or property vandalised.

Reporter Deborah Davies travels across Britain to visit the cities and towns which are most afraid of their younger inhabitants.
She also meets the victims of violent attacks; those who dared to tell teenagers to stop behaving badly and those who discovered that when they were attacked people just walked on by rather than help them.

Prod/ Dir: Karen Edwards; Exec Prod: Eamon Matthews; Prod Co: Mentorn Oxford

Channel 4 8:00pm - 9:00pm Monday 24th April.
Repeated on Channel 4 Thursday 27th April 2:35am - 3:30am

A very interesting programme !!

It does seem that we are tackling the anti-social behaviour from the wrong direction.

And it was quite thought provoking that the adults are the real guilty parties not the youth.
