Four years ago the village of Llanaelhaearn (population 250), in North Wales, was dying. The slate quarries which had employed many villagers had closed, and young people were moving away to find work.

Carl Clowes, the new village doctor, arrived as the battle to save the village school began. Since then he has been the moving spirit behind a village co-operative society which has achieved some surprising results.

In one of the boldest educational experiments of our time a Canadian medical school has successfully abandoned exams, lectures, and given students the power to direct their own learning and even remove poor tutors. The aim in this case is to train better family doctors.

This dramatic cinema verite film follows medical students at McMaster University through a number of real and simulated medical problems. The students diagnose and treat road accident casualties in hospital emergency rooms, distraught and depressed housewives, and a brain damaged 25-year-old girl who is unaware of her true condition.

Tonight's Horizon shows how the McMaster experiment is challenging the basic ground rules of education by showing that lectures and exams are not necessary for effective learning.
