1956x01 Special Enquiry: A Girl Comes to London

  • Season Premiere

    1956-10-25T07:00:00+10:00 — 60 mins

First transmitted in 1956, each week 500 girls leave their provincial homes and arrive in London either to take up jobs or look for work. But flaring headlines in Sunday papers about what has occasionally happened to some youngsters causes parents to worry. Are they right to be worried? Robert Reid sets out to find out what really brings the girls to London, what happens when they get there, how they live, what sort of digs they find and what sort of people they are meeting and palling up with. This Special Enquiry seeks to identify the true reality of what awaits these young women upon arriving in the bustling capital.
