12 x 30 minute episodes
Sex, diaries and videotape in this energetic, clever comedy about angsty teenager, Peter Payne (Alex Langdon), who is in lust with schoolgirl Amanda Jeffs (Liza Walker) and has a habit of using his camcorder for confessionals.
Adapted by Daniel Peacock, who played Payne’s alcoholic pest-controller father, from a book of the same name by Aidan Macfarlane and Anne McPherson, the whole series only took six weeks to film.
Shooting took place at Southbourne School in Ruislip, Middlesex, with lots of genuine pupils as extras.
