Film Description

Nightingale’s Boys shows what happens when a master at a northern grammar school, Bill ‘Tweety’ Nightingale, tries to organise a reunion with the boys of the ‘star’ class of his career: the 1949 sixth form. Nearing retirement and aware that his gifts are fading, Bill fondly regards the class as the high point of his career, and now hopes to recapture some of its alchemy; as this seven-part series unfolds, we see just how the likely lads of ’49 turned out - and whether Bill is doomed to disillusion.

Derek Farr - like several cast members a former teacher himself - brings great sympathy to the role of Bill Nightingale, a radical who had fought in the Spanish Civil War, and a distinguished master with 35 years' teaching experience. Each drama focuses on a particular member of his favourite class, with Anton Rodgers, Ronald Lewis, David Swift and Bernard Gallagher among the noted actors portraying the sixth-formers in adult life; writers include award-winning playwright Jack Rosenthal, Arthur Hopcraft (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) and John Finch (A Family at War).
