This week 3,000 men and women will be awarded degrees by the Open University. Most of them have full-time jobs and many were early school-leavers with no qualifications. A railwayman, a comedian, a housewife and a shop-steward seem unlikely undergraduates.
Jim Hopkinson is a 53-year-old builder's labourer reading for a Humanities degree at the OU. 'I used to go to work, come home, watch TV. But I found there were a lot of things, especially on BBC2, that were going past me.' He plans to stay at his present job after he's got his BA.
This programme looks closely at what has been described as the greatest advance in British Education for 100 years. It asks why so few people know anything about it. What has the OU achieved? And just how 'open' is it to those who have never passed an exam in their lives?
