This week: Who'll be Mother?: 2: Prep Schools
Two-thirds of all boys at prep schools are there because Daddy went too. Yet a report for the Government states quite firmly that children of primary-school age should be kept at home. Who is right - parents or critics?
What is the value of a system that turns children into men and, anyway, was designed in the days when little boys grew up to become little empire builders? Some of the boys Man Alive talked to found boarding school initially bewildering. Most of the parents, however, thought it selfish to keep them at home.
In this, the second of two programmes dealing with the situation when parents delegate the up-bringing of their children, Man Alive looks at what happens when little boys of eight are sent away for a boarding school to take over where Nanny left off.

Know Your Onions has been called 'that incredible dinner party,' 'slumming with the experts,' and 'chips with the nuts.' It is true that since its debut on BBC2 this kind of a panel game has played with such delicacies as smoked salmon, truffles, and Burgundy '61, but it has also created heated arguments with pork chops, supermarket cheese, and grocer's port.
