: Expulsion: Tuesday's Documentary

Every boy and girl will come into contact with drugs, in some form or other, before they leave school. This film meticulously reconstructs five crucial days in the life of a sixth-form college in Berkshire which was brought face to face with drug-taking in its midst. The film was shot at the actual school, and the dialogue is based on statements made at the time and before a witness. Actors have replaced two police detectives and those students who were deeply implicated. But all the others appearing in the reconstruction are the actual people involved - the students, the staff of the college, and the Principal.
This true story begins when a plain-clothes police officer overhears a group of pupils talking about drugs. It traces in detail the conflict of loyalty that developed within the community, the events which led to several expulsions, and a sequel that was unforeseen and tragic.
Some of the issues raised in this film are discussed in the following programme.


Producer: Roger Mills

: Drugs in Schools

Tonight's film raises a dilemma: how should drug incidents in schools be handled? What action should parents and head teachers take? This issue, so peculiar to our time, will be discussed by those whose jobs bring them face to face with it.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
