BBC Panorama 1974 Sheffield Schools

Recommended Posts

This has cropped up before; however I would like to hear from people who were at one of the 3 or 4 schools in 1974 (pupils or staff) that BBC Panorama used in a TV programme - which I believe(?) was titled: “Panorama goes comprehensive”; or anyone who has a copy of the programme (in full or part).  I have made an archive request to the BBC to see if it was archived.  I know clips have been used since in programmes like - “The 70s” and more recently “Back in time for school” (both BBC programmes).  Any help; recollection or memory would be gratefully received.

Fabulous thanks Edmund. I’m pretty sure that’s the programme I’m interested in and trying to track down. I’m sure Hurlfield school where I attended was filmed in ‘74 which would fit with this broadcast date.  I know Rowlinson school were also filmed - I have no recollection of the other schools which were involved?

I was at Hurlfield at that time. I wasn't featured on it though. I do recall that the teachers thought that Panorama had done an smear job on the school!

Thank you for responding.

How would I get in touch with Sheffield History members who have previously commented on similar threads in the past (e.g. Henry Pond; and Cool Hand Sax?
