The last of five programmes on the history of mass education in England and Wales.
England's early industrial supremacy owed little to education. As foreign competition loomed, schools in Victorian Birmingham began to link their timetable to the needs of local manufacturers. Yet 100 years later, vocational education is still a new and controversial issue.

Beverley, North Humberside 'From the train it looks as if the railway is going to run straight through the transept, but at the last moment it swerves to the right, and, thank goodness, the second finest non-cathedral church in England remains intact.
