BBC Teach: Underage alcohol abuse and binge drinking

A drama about the effects of alcohol abuse and binge drinking on young people. Joe is 14 and in year 9. He is growing up fast. With nobody at home most of the time, excitement means experimenting with alcohol. He causes chaos at an older child’s party and ends up on his own asleep on the night bus. His increasing bingeing is alienating even his close friend Chaz. Joe’s brother TB returns home just in time to rescue him. When Joe’s Mum discovers a stash of alcohol under the bed and blames TB, things come to a head.
This clip is from the BBC series L8R Youngers; short dramas about the journey from primary school into adolescence.
