In this series, Alan Davies returns to his Essex roots to rediscover his rebellious schoolboy years and explore the eighties through the heroes that defined the decade for him.

It’s also a story of racial tensions, as Alan looks at Britain at a time of mass unemployment and inner city riots.  He sets out to confront the leader of the local skinhead gang who  terrorised his teenage years, but he also explores some uncomfortable truths about his own conduct as a teenager along the way.
