Synopsis

This Children’s Film Foundation* film transports the conventions of a spy thriller into the escapades of London schoolboys in the 1960s. Having already kicked a ball through the headmaster’s window, Dick is determined to stay out of trouble so when he forgets his homework he rushes back to school after hours to retrieve it. Its here that he finds himself mixed up in a complicated crime involving the school bell, a famous painting and a rag and bone man. The only way to clear his name and bring the real criminals to justice is employ the talents of his whole year, setting up a slick surveillance operation and even roping in his little sister and friends. * The Children’s Film Foundation was set up in 1951 to produce content specifically for young people.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
