Directed by DON LETTS

For FRED PERRY Subculture Films website. Produced by John Osborne of Brassneck TV

The first episode in the series looks at the birth of British youth subculture with the arrival of Teddy Boys and Rockers. Features interviews with Phill Jupitus and Robert Elms.

The 1950s and Britain sighs with relief after two World Wars. Conscription will end in 1959 and young men  no longer have to wear a uniform. The working class find themselves with money in their pockets, and, at the same time, there is an influx of new sounds and styles coming over from America. Enter the Teddy Boys, with their flamboyant peacocking and Edwardian drape jackets. Soon after come the Rockers, with their leather, bikes and fighting, also craving a dress style different to that of previous generations.

This desire to rebel and challenge traditional social systems, coupled with an eager consumption for the new music and styles, resulted in the birth of the British Subculture. To check out the rest of the series visit: www.fredperrysubculture.com
