TV: D is for...


1950S-SET PUBLIC school nostalgiathon, starring RICHARD PASCO as eponymous headmaster George Drummond and JOHN ‘course of leeches’ GRILLO as Holocaust-surviving science master Sigmund ‘Siggy’ Guntz. Sole point of interest was lonely bossman taking up with a pupil’s mother, played by delectable CIARAN MADDEN. Cue inexplicable stirrings in breast of 12-year-old male viewers. Oh, and the opening titles combined aerial views of Middle England and stirring Elgar-lite years before The Vicar of Dibley.

    The intro music that accompnied that beautiful aerial pphotography through sea mist, over the cliffs of dover and into the valleys of kent was written by Wilfred Josephs. it has lodged in my mind ever since.
