The Rev Irwine/Jailor:
Described in the 19th century as 'a cross between a harrand boy and a chambermaid', the college servants of Oxford University were like personal servants to the undergraduates and the dons, doing everything from providing hot water to serving their meals in their rooms.
Most of these old duties have now gone, and the traditional scout has been largely replaced by a skeleton staff of part-time cleaners. But ask any undergraduate, and they'll tell you that they still have a scout. So does he - or she - still exist? Or are they no more than glorified cleaners?

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.
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.
