Privates

Set in 1960, Privates is the story of the last intake of conscripts for National Service; eight young men of ‘Two Section’ undertake their basic training at a windswept camp in the north of England.

The 5 x 45 minute series follows their stories individually and as a group – seeing them hurt, grow, rebel and have fun. The early 1960’s saw the building of the Berlin wall and the end of automatic deference. PRIVATES explores the notions of ‘duty’, ‘discipline’ and ‘class’, in the era of rock n’ roll.
