Our Day Out
Our Day Out is a hilarious, chaotic tale of a group of teenagers let off the leash for a day's outing to Conwy Castle in Wales. Stopping off at a cafe, a zoo, the beach and a funfair, they take every opportunity to bicker, dawdle, cajole, steal and go missing.
Filmed on location with a cast of untrained child actors, it's an exuberant celebration of the joys and agonies of growing up and being footloose, 14 and free from school. But it also portrays bleak lives of under-educated kids from the backstreets of Liverpool.
This tender comedy, directed by 1996 BAFTA-winner Pedr James (Our Friends in the North), draws on Willy Russell's own experiences of school trips as both pupil and teacher. Originally broadcast on BBC One in 1977, it was later adapted as a stage musical and still features today as a school text.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
