The continuing saga of the troubles and strife in 1950s Walworth of the Adams family and as ever it really hits the mark

Ups and Downs Synopsis

As the 1950s progress, several unexpected happenings ruffle the usually calm atmosphere of Adams family life. Sammy and Boots are troubled by the first stirrings of industrial unrest, as the unions start to flex their muscles and old loyalties change, while an attractive new employee causes Sammy some troubles of a different kind. The older generation are more than a little surprised at what they see around them as society moves on and the lives of the youngsters are being taken over by rock ‘n’ roll. Young Emily, still only thirteen but old beyond her years, catches the eye of a teddy boy, while Linda is pursued by a smooth-talking young man. But good sense and good luck prevail, and the Adams family find the strength to cope with these challenging times.
