The Wild Child

Channel 4

FORMAT: 1 x 60′

Booze, narcotics, promiscuity and school uniforms – a dangerous combination that would create the underage hell-raisers of the Eighties and allow a generation of kids to be manipulated, sexualised and exploited. Featuring the stories of Amanda de Cadenet, Emma Ridley, Annabella Lwin and Mandy Smith. This film tells the stories of the ‘wild childs’ of the eighties who joined the hedonistic wagon of adulthood only to be pushed into sex and substance abuse by pop’s old codgers.
