Cromwell is invited to address The Rotary Club, and asks Miss Ewell to write his speech. When she refuses, he locks himself in his office, and begins to reorganise the school, drawing up a giant-sized timetable.
David wants to use the playground to stage a reenactment of 'The Charge Of The Light Brigade', but, finding it off-limits, takes 4C to see the film of the same name. Liz complains about being unwell, so he has to leave 4C to take her home...
One aspect of school I ( along with the rest of the class ) used to enjoy was the 'educational trip', whether it be to a play, museum or zoo. If nothing else, it provided a welcome respite from the stifling atmosphere of the school. In this Rowley/Baker episode, three such trips occur simultaneously, the others presided over by Price and Smithy. Price returns from the brewery drunk, and Smithy goes missing.
Spot The Mistake: when David leaves the cinema, 4C are unsupervised. By rights he ought to have appointed one pupil to act as monitor.
Mollie Sugden plays the mother of one of David's pupils. The Dreaded Liz returns, fortunately her only line is: "Sir, I feel sick!". One of her fellow classmates is a young Elaine Donnelly. Ten years later, she would star in the L.W.T. sitcom 'Lovely Couple'.
'The Charge Of The Light Brigade' starred David Hemmings and was made in 1968, so this must be a reissue.
Funniest moment - an inebriated Price sits on David's desk, and breaks it!
