Underage Drinking: Made by young people aged 14 to 20 years who believe you need to make up your own mind about alcohol.
What happens if you give a camcorder to a group of youngsters and ask them to make a programme about alcohol? The answer is a film that takes a serious look at both the pros and cons of drinking and allows viewers to make up their own minds about the subject. The group interviewed people representing different angles on the subject and found a wide range of opinions and information that open up areas for debate.

65% of suicide attempts are alcohol related, 15% of drownings relate to heavy drinking, 40% of 13 & 14 year old girls are drunk or stoned when first having sex. Over 40% of violent crime is committed by people who have been drinking.

Over £200 million is spent every year on advertising alcohol !!
