Best Tv Movie Movies of 1991



7.7/10 IMDB

This is the hard and shocking story of life in a British borstal for young offenders. Luckily the regime has changed since this TV film was made. The brutal regime made no attempt to reform or improve the inmates and actively encouraged a power struggle between the 'tough' new inmate and the 'old hands'. Banned by the BBC for 14 years, this original television version of 'Scum' was finally aired in July 1991. Meanwhile, the director and writer had re-made the film [see Scum (1979)] for theatrical release after it was originally banned for TV broadcast.
