Episode 23 is all about generational conflict – specifically, older people disapproving of “kids today”. In the film chat, Dom talks to members of the South Bank Talkies movie discussion group about The Boys(1962), a courtroom drama in which four young men are on trial for murder. StarringDudley Sutton, Jess Conrad, Tony Garnettand Ronald Laceyas the boys, they also have to contend with the prejudice of the court & witnesses against “teddy boys”.

We also met up with Shanne Bradley, founder member of punk band, The Nipple Erectors(later abbreviated to The Nips) to hear about her time on the punk scene and how she views subsequent youth subcultures that have come along.
In 2000, this restrospective compilation album of Nipple Erector and Nips songs was released: The Tits of Soho.

In the discussion about The Boys, one of the participants mentioned the Lombroso theory of criminal behaviour. You can read about that HERE.
If you’d like to hang out at the BFI with the South Bank Talkies group, wearing black polo neck jumpers, smoking cheroots whilst earnestly discussing film (it might not actually be like that….) you can find them HERE
