A celebration of Nigel Molesworth, the bleakly comic anti-hero immortalised in the books of 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?
