Peter Clark Posted September 19, 2008 Share Posted September 19, 2008 I saw the DVD of this last night, in which John Cleese plays (as usual) a maninacal character, ths time a headmaster obsessed with time. He describes his school as a "common or garden ordinary comprehensive" and the architecture suggests it was built in the 60s/early 70s. But the assembly hall has a pipe organ - prety rare I would have thought for a common or garden ordinary comprehensive of the 60s! The school is also called, mysteriously, Thomas Tomkins - so is there a musical message here? Does anyone know where it was filmed and if the organ was indeed real (in the film a pianist accompanies the hym at assembly)? Just curious, that's all.
