Film details

Synopsis

After Zipser's tragic death, Cornelius Carrington arrives at the College to begin his TV documentary exposé. As Sir Godber tries to implement his reforms, Skullion plots his revenge for his dismissal after 45 years of loyal service. In an attempt to get his job back he goes to Sir Godber, offering his substantial life savings to the College if he will be reinstated. Sir Godber is adamant, however, and in the remonstrance is knocked back, with a picture accidentally falling on his head. On being found dying, in a semi-concussed state he manages to blurt out Skullion's name, interpreted by the staff as his dying nomination of a successor to the position of Master.
