    I am looking for a play from the BBC, first broadcast in the late sixties and I think repeated some years ago. The plot lone basically being two families in I think the Bristol area who go for a picnic day out. Both have teenage children who become "friendly" I seem to remember the girl ends up in her knickers. It is a study of the lower middle class being looked down upon by the upper middle class. The whole play is extremely funny.can anyone tell me if I have the correct title, and does anyone have a copy.



    Kind Regards
