In some ways there wasn't a lot of history in it, but it reminded me so much of the power of a good teacher. I loved history as an 'A' level student. My two teachers, Nigel Wills and Bob Crossan, are still at the same school (I think!). They made the subject come alive and I am still indebted to them. Unlike in the film I never got a lift on a motorbike from either of them - much to my relief!
Frances de la Tour put in a great performance as did all the other cast members. In fact, it's one of the funniest and at times excruciating films I have seen for a long time. Highly recommended.
