Not in Our Class, Dear

A BBC archive programme that asks if Britain can ever be a classless society.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

With the impending UK general election seemingly throwing up the return of old class jealousies it’s interesting to view this Man Alive programme from 1966 via the BBC Archive site. The benefits of an Eton education are discussed as the programme interviews people from different points along the class scale of the mid 1960’s.

Love the tell-tale signs of an upper class home : “They fill the fruit bowl several times a week”. Oh the luxury.
