This programme was advertised last night about the primary-to-secondary school transfer and following families who have been through this process. I think it is being broadcast on Tuesday on BBC 2. Should be interesting!

This is an intimate and revealing account of modern Britain which brings to the fore a better understanding of the complexity and difficulty of administering a system that has to balance all the choices and find school places for 16 000 children in this year alone.


it is easy to forget how difficult it must be to organise transfers when we are just focussed on one person..I'm amazed it works out as well as it does sometimes..

They were filming at our son's school on induction day - we were asked to signed a consent form in case he wandered into shot :lol: ! I don't think he did, but I shall be watching anyway - been looking forward to this since I noticed the request for volunteers on the home page last year!

[edit - I don't think it's on Tuesday though - I think they're filming start of the new term as well so iI imagine it's likely to be about Nov before it's on]

This is the thread I meant to nudge earlier today, to remind everyone it's on tonight. Instead I nudged gorgeous Gareth's thread instead, which is on this Thursday night!

Put it down to my age please :oops: :lol: :lol:
