Lee Whitlock
11 August 2006 | by jeukSee all my reviews

I think Lee Whitlock played the part of the young footballer, who'd been diagnosed with cancer. Steve Fletcher played the older brother! Lee Whitlock who played the part of Harvey Moon's son in the original TV series.The screenplay was written by a young boy, who himself was diagnosed with a terminal illness, and was a keen supporter of Chelsea F.C. When this film was first shown on TV in the UK it was introduced by the young man himself. It received much publicity at the time but never reached more than a marginal audience.It would be worthwhile to see this film again just to re-cap the emotions felt at that time. Perhaps it will be shown again on British Television.
