A series built around the young talents of Gary Warren after his success in the Catweazle and The Railway Children.

Alexander Green is 16 years-old from a middle-class Jewish family living in London. He considers himself a bit of a rebel and feels he is ready to leave home and school, and all set to join society. But the home comforts he has become used to seem to make it more difficult than he imagined and his parents, annoyingly for him, are trying to understand him.
