: Waterloo Road

New series. 1/20; series five.
When a local private school closes, an influx of its pupils causes friction. Meanwhile, Rachel is at loggerheads with the new executive head, Max Tyler.
Writer Ann McManus; Producer Sharon Channer
Director Matthew Evans
Simulcast in HD on the BBC HD channel

Waterloo Road 8.00pm BBC1, BBC HD
DRAMA The drama that imagines the daily life of a secondary school as a catalogue of crises (which may not take much imagining) returns for a 20-part run. Big changes are afoot: the comp we know and love is merging with a high-achieving neighbouring school called John Foster, so backs are up. Waterloo Road feels invaded by poshoes; John Foster types feel they're slumming it. And that's just the teachers; the kids are in open warfare. Into this maelstrom steps suave new "executive head" Max Tyler, played by reigning Strictly champ Tom Chambers, who glides about like a Moss Bros mannequin on castors. The pupils applaud when he enters, perhaps because he looks as if he might break into a quickstep. But the suave exterior is deceptive - Max is a mean authoritarian. That puts him on a collision course with sympathetic head teacher Rachel (Eva Pope), a tussle that looks as if it will define the coming weeks. Although the drama can be painful to watch (bolshie schoolchildren, shouting matches, sledgehammer plotting), sooner or later the blend of soap and seriousness draws you in - and it's addictive. DB

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
