  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


This enchanting coming-of-age drama was broadcast on Channel 4's second night. Young Alan is required to kiss the girl of his dreams in the school play: do dreams really come true? John Arlott commentates on the cricket-loving boy's obsession, and Alison Steadman is excellent as a strict, frustrated schoolteacher. 'Expertly directed by Apted from one of Jack Rosenthal’s breeziest scripts, P’Tang Yang Kipperbang...would doubtless be regarded as a minor classic if it had been theatrically released.' (Julian Upton, MovieMail)
