  • Help finding an 80's film made for TV.

    Looking for a Scottish film made in the mid 80’s for TV. I thought it was called Shadow on the Moon however my internet searches have been unsuccessful. The story was about a pair of brothers being brought up in the 60’s, the youngest was fascinated with space and there is a seen where he (Billy I think) is watching the news on a black and white TV when it is broadcast Uri Gagarin has just become the first man in space. One of the boy's neighbours is an albino called Maurice who drives a VW, the brothers think Morris is a space man and the VW a spaceship. Their fascination with Morris is that great they end up breaking into his home to verify his extra terrestrial credentials and get caught.

    Other seen's that may jog a memory or two;

    The mother of the boys introducing a street play put on by the local kids and her opening line is “Ladles and Jelly Spoons”

    A wee fight between two child gangs where the bully gets shot on the bum with an air pistol.

    School bus passing a rival school, and both sets giving each other pelters in passing.

    Any help with this one, much appreciated.
