How to be Topp

The second in the series celebrating schoolboy anti-hero Nigel Molesworth, who featured in one of the classic depictions of the trials and tribulations of school life - the Molesworth books by Geoffrey Willans and Ronald Searle.

This programme provides some new analyses of the key characters and scenes in the books: was Fotherington-Thomas's feyness an inspired double bluff? How flawed a hero was Grabber, head of school? And are there echoes of Sartre in Molesworth's famous cricket soliloquy?
