A Higher Education--A Polemic (For a Change)
Peters, Lloyd
Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, v14 n4 p313-317 Oct 2015
The BBC Radio 4 comedy-drama "A Higher Education" was written in 1999 to present a satire of a dysfunctional and cash-strapped university (Northfield) led by the egotistical and amoral Head of Drama, Don Crookfield (played by Rik Mayall). For those of us passionately engaged in the provision of higher education today, the satire also represents a sad reflection on the fact that many of the challenging issues presented in the play appear to have changed little in 16 years. Surely it is time for a change?
