Parodies of pre-war tales of heroism and derring-do, written by and starring Michael Palin and Terry Jones. A pupil at a public school is downtrodden one moment and official bully-in-residence the next, enjoying bizarre privileges including opium-smoking and the amorous attentions of Filipino women.
