This sixties British cinema classic charts the story of Del, a young apprentice, and his 15 year-old girlfriend Irene who have no money and nowhere to go.

Angry and frustrated, they go in search of fun and freedom and turn to “Bronco Bullfrog”, who is fresh out of borstal and living an independent lifestyle.

Powerful and authentic, this fascinating insight into the then-emerging suedehead subculture, largely improvised by a non-professional cast of teenagers from East London, is released here in a fully remastered presentation with an array of exciting extras:

Everybody’s An Actor, Shakespeare Said (1968, 30 minutes): A documentary by Platts-Mills charts Joan Littlewood’s theatre work with the teenagers who star in Bronco Bullfrog.

Joan Littlewood Interview (1968, 21 minutes): the formidable and outspoken theatre director discusses her career.

Seven Green Bottles (Eric Marquis, 1975, 35 minutes): a cautionary tale of seven young delinquents, played by non-professional actors.
