A healthy dose of fresh air, a few risky situations and good-natured pranks make this Children Film Foundation film a most enjoyable watch. David is a stubborn London teenager with a sense of his own superiority. Spending a couple of weeks at a boys-only youth club in the Lake District, he gets frustrated when forbidden to climb a local mountain - due to a protected eagle nesting at the top - and plots a secret ascent.
