Watched this when the school was shut because we had a couple of inches of snow. I'd walked in as usual and there were about 9 kids in the history lesson and the teacher gave us all a boll0cking on behalf of those who hadn't showed. Along the lines of "How do you think they cope in Russia....etc". I remember thinking "Hang on, we turned up, tell them, not us." I didn't say it to him as he had been known to hang kids out of his first floor window and in the first year he banged a couple of classmates' heads into lockers for talking. Good teacher though, old school.

Great "mini-series" before the term was invented. Another good one a few years later was about the Aussies in Vietnam.
