From the Thames Television documentary strand This Week, this is a half-hour black and white examination of gang violence on the streets of Glasgow, broadcast in 1968, focusing on the attempts of singer Frankie Vaughan to combat the knife-related psychopathy of the new and sprawling housing estates with a touch of soft-shoe glamour. In a memorable phrase the voiceover describes Frankie as a man who "could never be accused of doing good by stealth". Various councillors in batwing-spectacles are wheeled on to proclaim that Something Must Be Done. Various gang members proffer threatening insinuations of supremacy. A panoply of do-gooders pop up to suggest doomed remedies. Grainy footage depicts the psychotic skirmishes that scar the streets of Glasgow when the pubs come out and the Glasgow Police organise an Untouchable-style task force to oppose the euphemistically-dubbed "group disorder".

Filmed and narrated with Pathe-style formality, this is a fascinating glimpse of old Britain giving way to new, as the forces of decency realise gradually, with rising unemployment, family breakdown and the alienating powers of the new concrete jungles, that the kids are most certainly not alright.
