'On Location with Franc' - Franc Roddam revisits several locations used in the film
"We are the mods, we are the mods,
we are, we are, we are the mods!"
London 1964: two rival youth cults emerge - the mods and the rockers - with explosive consequences. For Jimmy (Phil Daniels) and his sharp-suited, pill-popping, scooter-riding mates, being a mod is a way of life. It's their generation.
Together they head off to Brighton for an orgy of drugs, thrills and violent confrontation against the rockers. Jimmy never wants to stray from his maxim: "I don't wanna be like everybody else, that's why I'm a mod, see?" Will Jimmy emerge a hero or will he be disillusioned by his way of life?
