Tales Out of School

Tales Out of School was a series of four plays by David Leland which were screened on TV in the early eighties. The most famous was 'Made in Britain' with Tim Roth.
'Birth of a Nation' featured Jim Broadbent as a newly qualified teacher who is appalled at the level of corporal punishment being doled out at a comprehensive school.
The whole series has recently been released on DVD.
