Regional Variations (2)

Duration: 55 minutes

on BBC Two Northern Ireland (Analogue)

Dundridge awakens after a night at the golf club to find himself in a car, in a lonely country road, clad only in his underwear.

This film was first shown in the Yesterday's Witness series in 1974. James Cameron is the narrator. 'In this tranquil corner of Norfolk in the spring of 1914, the local schoolchildren took drastic action and a spontaneous act of love; they came out on strike because their teachers had been sacked.
A village schoolroom strike in 1914? How could it have come about? Yet it was a strike that was to go on for more than 20 years ...'
