New teacher Max Bygraves (all round entertainer & former Host of Family Fortunes ) arrives at a tough East London school to find that his modern education methods are not welcome. Sadistic master Geoffrey Keen (The Spy Who Loved Me, Octopussy) grabs the rod and thrashes pupils at the slightest sight of trouble, supported by hesitant Headmaster Donald Pleaseance. Bygraves eventually makes good progress with the pupils but is fired after a school riot caused by Keen s brutality. Also starring a young Jeremy Bulloch (The Empire Strikes Back) and Richard O Sullivan (Dick Turpin, Man About the House). Features extensive booklet notes. Picture Restored by BBC Post Production.

Customer Reviews


A good film that should be shown more

Excellent portrayal of life in a tough school with even tougher teachers. Bygraves is in an unusual role for him but this doesn't stop him giving a great performance. Top supporting cast too.
