Be My Baby

A poignant drama set in 1960s Britain, Be My Baby follows the fortunes of Mary Adams, aged 19, unmarried and seven months pregnant.

Forcibly sent to a Mother and Baby Home in the north of England by a mother intent on keeping up appearances, Mary – along with the other girls in the home – has to cope with both the shame and the dawning realisation that she will have to give the baby up for adoption whether she likes it or not. Despite this – and an overbearing matron – the girls' youthful effervescence keeps breaking through, as they sing along to the girl-group songs of the period.

You don't have to be young, female or unmarried to find it immensely touching -  The Times
