BBC's schools season
24 Aug 2010
Well done to the BBC for putting a 'schools season' on BBC2 to mark the start of the new school year.
While the BBC doesn't always get it right on education coverage (it's a shame that since the demise of The Learning Curve, formerly on Radio 4, there is not a single dedicated education programme while cars, business, gardening, law, and medicine all merit their own programmes), this deserves praise as an imaginative move at a time when millions of parents are focusing on school choices.
The schools season includes documentaries and dramas and films including of Alan Bennett's 'The History Boys' (5th September) and Richard Eyre's 'Notes on a Scandal' (18th September).
