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.


Ken had the lovely Tony Imi stripped off,

with his camera held high above his head,

filming these girls leaping in the water.
