‘ello, ‘ello, ‘ello

Helping with enquiries

So this is what asbo-fodder looked like in 1986. Well to be accurate, it’s an interpretation of 1986 yoof by a bunch of nice middle-class drama students (…and me, pffft!)

Did we even get paid? I can’t remember – it might have been just for the pleasure of seeing our young faces in print. I’m not really sure what Surrey Police ever did with this either. Sniggered probably. I’d pay really good money for a copy of the training video we shot for them on another occasion. We would act out scenes of crime and disorder for probationers to practice their recitation of the newly formalised words from the then Police & Criminal Evidence Act. I just remember a bunch of us singing “Here we go” and trying to give some PCs a good kicking and another scene where one of them tried to arrest us on suspicion of possession, on the basis of a screwed up bit of tinfoil from a Mr Kipling Bakewell Tart.

  1. ok, you had me there, for a few nano seconds, before I scrolled down to the text; what’s going on ‘ere then? some sort of fancy dress garden party snapped on your way home? No, a posed modern interpretation of a classic painting?, no, I think I might have been fooled in the 80′s, everything from the 80′s just doesn’t look real now. Which one looks more like George Michael?
