Being unemployed is bad enough. But if you have never had a job in your life what does it feel like to be rejected, to have to live on handouts with little prospect of ever finding work? Two youngsters in Liverpool tell us their view of it and we see something of job creation schemes, which, although very worthwhile, barely scratch the surface of the problem. 1977. 30 mins.
