The edited video
(8 minutes 4 seconds):
camera pulls back from a tower block to show a wider view of inner Leeds, with
its packed-in terraced houses and a poorly maintained field, as seen from a school
We cut to Ryan,
with the school behind him, as he shows us the state of the field he is in. Benches
have been burnt and people have been making fires. 'The Council should have made
this into a park,' Ryan asserts. Asif shows us in more detail, noting, 'Before
three years this place used to be really nice. These used to be benches'. 'If
the council didn't want all this,' says Amaz, indicating the mess, 'they should
have made it into a park'. Ryan shows us a substantial pile of dumped rubbish.
'A few months ago people were complaining that they found syringes. My little
nephew got scratched by one'.
that if only the Council would maintain the park properly, it would be a very
good resource for the school and children living locally. Tabrez and Fozia then
shows us some houses typical of the area.
We cut to Omar,
seated in school, who is asked by Amaz from off-camera, 'What place do you not
like, any why?'. Omar: 'I do not like... the field, because it is dirty.' Amaz:
'Why's it dirty?'. Omar: 'Because there's been a lot of litter there'.
interviewed): 'Hyde Park's more interesting to play there, and the field isn't,
because it's messy'. We see Farzana and Shazia at the start of the path into Hyde
Park, from their school. 'This is Hyde Park!' they announce happily.
We cut to Maryam
(being interviewed): 'Because in Hyde Park the area's so greenery and so much
trees'. Amaz and Omar (at the park entrance) show us where the school is in relation
to the park.
in school, Maryam (off-camera) asks Yasir, 'Which places do you like best?'. Yasir:
'I like Hyde Park best. I like to play, everywhere in the park'. Maryam: 'Why
do you like it?'. Yasir: 'Because there are all things there. And friends, to
Ryan shows us
the Hyde Park allotments: 'People around this area grow their vegetables in here'.
In school, Amaz asks Omar, 'Did you enjoy going places?' 'Yes, especially the
park'. 'Why?'. 'Because it's nice, and if you go to some places it's quiet'.
Yasir, and then
Fozia, point to the university, and some students, and note that many students
live in the area. Maryam shows us the many paths in the park, and then the statue;
'It's built in 1852'. We are also shown the nearby church, and dentist's.
the play area, as Fozia tells us, 'This is a nice place for the children to play.
It has not got a lot of litter on it'. Farzana is asked, 'What did you like about
Hyde Park?'. Her reply: 'Playing on the swings!'. In the park, Amaz kicks a crisp
bag with a cry of 'Football!', and we launch into a musical sequence where the
children 'demonstrate' the recreational uses of the equipment to the full, playing
on the slide, swings and climbing frames. As the music dies, we find the ten children
gathered at the foot of the statue. 'We all like Hyde Park,' they shout, then
jump off, caught in a freeze-frame as we go into the end titles, which show us
their names accompanied by a shot of each child.
