ABSTRACT
The year is 1914 and young Bert Middleton is growing up in abject poverty on the family farm in the Peak District. His father, John, is riven by alternate acts of cruelty and tearful bouts of remorse. On one occasion a terrified Bert, played by newcomer Bill Jones, 12, is locked in a cupboard all night just for looking at his brother Joe during a telling-off.
