Gone up north for a while is a television film made in 1972 about the experiences of a young unmarried woman who decides, against the advice of social welfare officers and her family, to keep her baby. At this time sole parents received very little state support. This excerpt shows the unsympathetic treatment she received from her landlord and welfare officer.
