It’s back to school with the introduction of this quaint mini-documentary. Children clad neatly in blazers, hauling their book bags to class. Fresh faces gather in an assembly hall, reading their morning prayers, while school ambassadors address the studentship. The fruits of a good education are put on display with a tour of the local institutions: Moorfields Eye Hospital, the Tate and Lyle sugar factory, and the East Ham College of Technology.
