: Kingswood: A Comprehensive School

A series of nine films
5: ' It's like a prison: they work by bells '
Andy Sinclair is a habitual truant, a constant smoker, an occasional glue sniffer and a fifth-form folk hero. He sees little point in being at a school he does not enjoy, less point in adhering to values he does not share and no point at all in taking exams he will not pass. The school must try to contain this problem. The family must try to live with it. As Andy all too slowly approaches school-leaving age, paternalistic authority and disenchanted adolescence come face to face.

Tonight Frank Delaney asks three well-known critics to defend their role and to discuss the function of criticism in the arts. His guests: Bernard Levin, whose opinions are once again being enjoyed by readers of The Times, has in the past turned a discerning eye on such varied subjects as the theatre. politics, music, fiction and food; Christopher Ricks, Professor of English at Cambridge and Editor of The State of the Language; and Marina Vaizey, currently Art Critic of the Sunday Times.

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.
