I am from Leicester originally but I had never seen this:-
"The Girl With Brains In Her Feet" is set in Leicester...
Filmed in 1997 but set in 1972...
It is a weird kind of "Kes" (substituting Leicester for Barnsley).
The aspiring athlete girl goes to the fictional St Bradgates School with a view of Old John!
...she uses the hill for training (and also the odd bit of nookie at the top - next to the monument).
Full marks for the authentic Leicester references througho
