We were asked to produce a series of contemporary single dramas

about the world as it actually was.

So, that was our brief,

to stir up a bit of trouble.

It was a magical medium to work with, and so that's compulsive.

Because you're not only dealing with drama and actors

and performance and telling a story,

you're also dealing in images and light and movement.

I mean, all those things.

I moved to Battersea because I didn't like Chelsea.

I got a job in a sweet factory, packing chocolate liqueurs...

..and bought a little cottage for 700.

There was always a big queue for the bath.

And also, a telephone -

there was always a big queue for the telephone.

They had one queue for the bath, the other for the telephone,

cos I think I was the only bath in the street.

That's where I was,

and so I wrote about what was around me.

# I wanna be loved by you

# Alone, scoop-boop-be-doop. #

Where do think you're going, all dressed up like the Queen of Sheba?

Ken found the book,

and he was just aching to do it.

They were just absolutely what I was looking for, because they were

little events, little moments, little relationships.

Get him worked up, give him a love bite, that'll do it.

The lads taking the girls on the motorbikes and going round

an empty house - it had an energy and a kind of febrile...

..scent of danger.

They became a script very quickly with just a little editing, really.

He told me what HE wanted.

He told me what he wanted, and I tried to do it.

The problem was it had to be shot on location.

And I put it through the works at the BBC, as though it were a

studio show, so that there wouldn't be any alarm bells going off.

Hey-hey!

Ken had the lovely Tony Imi stripped off,

with his camera held high above his head,

filming these girls leaping in the water.
