This was a fly on the wall documentary series in six parts about life at Edinburgh University which might have been of more interest to me had it started a few weeks later rather than finishing the night before I got my A Level results.
As it was I only saw one episode which centred on whether or not to close a day nursery for student parents in the face of budget pressures. What caught my eye was that one of the key decision makers involved was Liberal leader David Steel who was also Rector of the University. I seem to recall that some solution was found and Steel presented that same unflappable bonhomie that was always his public persona until a certain satirical puppet show got to work on him.
