Dementia-Friendly: The Young Ones

Screening Dates:
Tue 12 February 2:30pm

Director: Sidney J. Furie
Cast: Cliff Richard

Cliff Richard plays Nicky in ’60s musical drama The Young Ones. He and his friends find that their youth club is in danger of being flattened to make way for a new office block unless they can come up with £1500 to pay the new owner, the ruthless property tycoon Hamilton Black. To help raise the cash, Nicky records a song and his friends broadcast it via a pirate radio station, touting him as “The Mystery Singer” – the plan works and interest in their up and coming show is heightened by this new but unknown heart-throb. But Nicky has an even bigger secret and one that he cannot share, even with his girlfriend Toni… Hamilton Black is his father.
