Full synopsis

Strange Hill High. Copyright: BBC / Factory Transmedia.

During School Safety Week, Mitchell, Becky and Templeton are placed in detention and forced to watch a horrible old school safety film from the 70s.

This being Strange Hill, the trio soon find themselves trapped in the film itself, in a 1970s version of the school where anything that can go wrong, does. In a horribly unsafe way.

They must find a way out of the film as they face a school on the brink of multiple disasters - pretty much every disaster film from the 70s. Along the way, they get help from an unlikely source - the mysterious school custodian, Murdoch who has a mysterious connection to the film itself.
