How to Look Good Naked

May 22 2007, 10:00 AM 

There are a few, a very few, knicker-fetishists who are drawn to this forum and they will certainly want to tune in to this series which is being shown on Channel 4 on Tuesdays at 20.00.

The presenter, an Oriental, self-styled stylist of an alternative persuasion, with an extraordinarily shaped head, sets out to prove that he can turn some wretched woman who is ashamed of her body into a catwalk queen without the aid of surgery.

Early on in each programme he brings on a line of women, dressed only in bras and knickers, and asks the woman he is going to transform (henceforth known as ‘Vicky’) to estimate her place in the line in terms of grossness. She is always amazed to find that she is not quite the rhinoceros that she thought.

He then gets Vicky to strip to her bra and knickers in a fully-mirrored room. She tells the presenter which parts of her body she doesn’t like (it’s often all of them) and this usually reduces her to tears, giving him a chance for a quick grope. But that’s ok isn’t it? After all, he is gay, so there can be no suggestion of sexual assault.

Continuing to pander to the knicker-fetishists he is then shown rummaging through the poor woman’s underwear drawer, and cuts up the knickers of which he disapproves.

Throughout the programme, there is much poking, probing and rubbing. Vicky’s breasts are referred to as “hooters” or “bangers”, and by the end she is magically transformed and resembles a losing contestant in a glamorous grandmother competition. She waddles down a catwalk and lives happily ever after.

This is one of the most tasteless series ever shown on Channel 4 and whilst our decent, home-loving, family-orientated readers will avoid it, the knicker-fetishists with the aid of DVD recorders will be kept happy for years to come.

The name of the presenter is Gok Wan. This is surely a misprint. The letter k in his first name should be moved to the end of his second.

Julie Walters stars as sex-obsessed, mad-staring-eyed Mary Whitehouse, an unhappy woman, hell-bent upon cleaning up British television.

Published in next week’s ‘Radio Times’ is an article by E. Jane Dickson (who, herself, has an interest in corporal punishment) in which Julie Walters, speaking of her own schooldays, is quoted thus:

“And we had these bloody awful elocution lessons. I remember being stood out front one particular day and being told over and over again to say ‘bawth’ rather than ‘bath’, and I wouldn’t say it, because it felt to me like a betrayal of my father who had a Birmingham accent. I got a slap with the ruler every time. I remember thinking I couldn’t tell my parents what was going on at school, because they wouldn’t be able to deal with the power of the nuns. I felt I had to protect my parents from that. So it was a complicated childhood.”

Thanks for the alert about Fiona Phillips. Why do you call her Saucepan Face?

I have mentioned on another thread that I have an internet friend who is a schoolteacher from Aberdeen. We got together following a programme of Fiona's about parents with dementia, of which we both have experience of. However we do talk of other matters and I have tried to get some more information from her on the subject of corporal punishment in Scottish schools.No luck I'm afraid to say, but we are still in touch so I might have another go. Her main interest seems to be TV soaps.

On looking up Fiona Phillips further, she is subject to the most vile abuse on another forum. Someting like 10,000 messages all of which seem to be against her, and I don't really understand why.

BBC1 most of the day; BBC2 some of the day; all last week, all this week.

Who now remembers those BBC Television commentators of yesteryear?

On an outside court there was Peter West drooling over the gorgeous Peaches Bartkowicz, a player long past her best who loitered around the base-line. "Oh, well played, Peaches!", Peter would exclaim whenever she managed to get the ball over the net.

Commentating on the Centre Court matches was Dan "Oo, I say" Maskell. In between games former Wimbledon Singles Champion Jack Kramer would give us his lightening analysis of why there were so many unforced 'errs' and then divulge precisely what was in the minds of the players.

"Well Dan, Rodney's thinking now that if he can break serve then it's the beginning of the end for Johnny." Jack even had his own names for the players. To everyone else these two were Rod Laver and John Newcombe.

As is the American Way, Jack saw the match from the point of view of his fellow citizens. He had a particular liking for Clark Grabner. As Grabner was preparing to return serve, Jack announced, with what sounded like a bingo call, "One, four - Clark's behind!"

I am a big tennis fan, and not just during Wimbledon. I used to live just 10 minutes walk from Wimbledon in the 80s and went every other day after work.

I once lent Andrea Jaeger my umbrella during a thunderstorm and never got it back, so if I do see her again it will be a lively session with the old McCrostie young lady, though I understand you are now a nun.

I was interested in the reference to Peaches Bartkovicz, I cannot find a picture of her but I always thought she was a grotesquely fat girl, and had a sister called Apples, with whom she played doubles. The Monty Python team made fun of her claiming she was an Australian ( she was American) philosopher called Doctor Peaches Bartkowicz.

And I do remember Dan Maskell and Jack Kramer, Jack's catch phrase was " We got Noooooooo tennis balls Dan, Noooooo tennis balls" and Dan always referred to Sue Barker as the Devon girl, as in " tremendous forehand volley from the Devon girl"

Sadly I can't do better than these group photographs, but in each case there is a key to identify those present:

Photo One and Photo Two and This Web Page.

Unfortunately she is hiding behind Eva Lundquist in the second photograph, but if you use the 'Zoom' button you can see that she looks astonishingly like the Peaches Bartkowicz in the first photograph! The web page has several photos of her, just search it for 'Bartkowicz'. The best picture of the lot is probably this one from the above web page:

Forest Hills, 1970. Jane 'Peaches' Bartkowicz is the tall girl, 5th from the left.

Hi Steve, I am sorry to say I have drawn a blank, so no picture of Betty Ann Stuart, with or without the 'Watch It' knickers. sad.gif

I am afraid the lady in question seems to appear under a multiplicity of names. Her given name rotates through Bettyann via Betty Ann to Betty-Ann while her surname ranges through Grubb to Grubb-Stuart-Dent. She also married a Mr Hansen, so there may well be references under Grubb-Stuart-Dent-Hansen. I've tried some of the many permutations, but I can't find any pictures.

She had a number of claims to fame, notably, besides the 'Watch It' knickers episode, she won a womens doubles final with a player who had played at the top level as both a man and a woman. She also played at Wimbledon under all four of her surnames.

This article says a little bit about the famous knickers, scroll about halfway down the first page.

Thanks for the picture of Ms Bartcowicz, I remember her as being plumper than that, though she was only 21 at the time of the photo, so she must have filled out a bit in later years.

Not sure if this is the correct thread, but I saw one of my old teachers yesterday ( I see him quite regularly) and he told me that my old headmaster had died recently aged 90.He was known as Eric and was a ferocious man, a frequent user of the cane and much feared. One of his habits was to prowl the corridors and burst into lessons to pick on some unsuspecting boy and shake him violently.

The teacher also told me that my school are celebrating their 50th anniversary in September and all surviving teachers from 1959 are being invited. This will include two of the most regular slipperers , the PE teacher of binocular fame and a French teacher who also taught games who gave me the slipper once and made me say " Thank you sir".



Re: Your TV Tonight

July 2 2009, 9:36 AM 

Hi Declan. You say:

a French teacher who also taught games who gave me the slipper once and made me say " Thank you sir".

IMHO the sign of a true connoisseur of the flagellatory arts and a sadist to boot. But then we tend to find the later as a characteristic of male language teachers (and possibly female language teachers, though I have no experience in that area). Having absolutely no facility for languages whatsoever considerable mental cruelty and public humiliation was inflicted on me by successive Latin, French, German and Spanish masters. Indeed, I blame them for the fact that I have never ventured to parts of the world where the natives don't speak English - well, apart from Bulwell that is! happy.gif


Re: Your TV Tonight

July 2 2009, 10:20 AM 

The French/ Games teacher was an interesting character who, without doubt took a great interest in corporal punishment. Although not as prolific with the gym shoe as the PE teacher he clearly revelled in it when handing out slipperings. He seemed to like blonde good looking boys and they certainly took a disproportionate amount of his slipperings.Once, on a school trip, he put a blonde 13 year old boy over his knee and spanked him quite severely. I recall feeling rather uneasy about this.

He also threatened a girl with a "good spanking on your bottom", never carried out of course, but it proves his interest in the subject.

According to my source he is married to an Eastern European lady some 40 years his junior, and it wouldn't surprise me if she has taken a few spankings from him.

I think the Getty image, the one showing the knickers, is Betty Anne Stuart who is both broader in beam and more endowed with adipose tissue than Chrissie. Lets just say Betty Anne is built for the fiberglass cane and Chrissie for the wooden paddle. The girl sitting has a wooden racket, I dont know who she is, and the one with the knickers is not using a wooden but a fiberglass racket. When you sign a contract with Wilson youre not photographed with another racket so the one with the fiberglass one is definitely not Chrissie. Chris Evert and Jimmy Connors were the last of a breed when it came to wooden rackets. My favorite was a wooden Wilson, a Jack Kramer.

I agree with you that the Hulton picture is Betty Anne Stuart despite the caption. I can't imagine that lady tennis professionals went around swapping knickers and I'm sure they'd have died rather than buy something another lady had already showcased.

On a second glance at that hair, there's NO trace of blonde in it & Chris Evert was a born one, like me.

Thanks for the partial turn-on-pity we don't have the front view-she was a doll!

Oh, and when I played footie in the 70's I was frequently complemented by watching ladies on having legs as good as John Lloyd, Chris Evert's ex-husband, or current one back then.

I did once score 10 goals for Keele University as a guest player in a 15-0 win v Lincoln Theological College, who clearly didn't get divine intervention that day!

And, on the other side of this completely irrelevant coin, I once played centre-half against Eastchurch Prison;they won 15-0, their centre-forward scored nine & looked familiar.

Yes, although I found it interesting that the day I finished teaching is the day my favourite television show was axed. (The Bill - although it has greatly deteriorated in recent years as they turned into a soap opera.)

Australian television shows a fair amount of American content, and British content too, for that matter. For example, if I look at our free to air TV channels for this evening I find between 7.00 and 10.30.

On the ABC (Australian government owned channel), we have:

The 7.30 Report (Australian)
Foreign Correspondent (Australian)
Rivers with Griff Rhys (British)
Qi (Australian)
Artscale (Australian)

On Channel 7, we have:
Home and Away (Australian)
Eye of the Leopard (not sure)
Grey's Anatomy (American)
Private Practice (American)

On Channel 9, we have:
Two and a Half Men (American)
Top Gear (British)
Survivors (American)
20 to 1 (Australian)

On Channel 10, we have:
The 7pm Project (Australian)
The Biggest Loser (Australian)
Bondi Rescue (Australian)
NCIS (American)
NCIS: Los Angeles (American)

Do I watch American television? Yes. Current shows, NCIS, Law and Order (in its various forms), Warehouse 13. Older shows - M*A*S*H, The West Wing, Star Trek (in its various forms - original Trekker here), X-Files, Buffy, Hill Street Blues, Boston Public, Firefly - these are just what immediately come to mind, there's a lot more as well.

Hmm - looking over at my DVD shelf, I've come up with an idea. I shall post about it in a new thread momentarily.

I assume Tracey Childs may be an actress some may know from this estimable Forum. Synopsis, photos and download.

"Doctor has a lunch date with Susan, a very attractive 40-something woman played by Tracey Childs. She invites him back to her place to taste some expensive wine. When she gets him home, its obvious that she has other things on her mind. The next thing you know another equally attractive woman pops up! They make it clear that they want a threesome and Heston gets cold feet and makes for the door. Teasing him like a couple of schoolgirls they take his jacket upstairs to the bedroom. Once upstairs with Heston still demanding his jacket back, Susans husband comes home! Heston hides in the bathroom and hears the husband berating his wife saying she is up to old tricks then there is the unmistakable sound of a spanking being delivered! Heston charges out of the bathroom loo brush in hand to save the woman when he finds the husband half-dressed with his wife (not distressed) across his knee being spanked with the other woman watching!"

Hi American Way. You are not very specific about what you are trying to do, but I presume you are trying to watch/download from the BBC iPlayer site.

It would of course be very naughty of you to do this, because as a US citizen you do not pay the outrageous annual tax demanded of those Brits who are foolish enough to want to watch TV. (Aside note: If anyone objects to the word foolish, sorry, but if everyone refused to pay and declined to watch TV it would rapidly become free, or at least very considerably cheaper, and the monolithic and money wasting BBC would be forced to become lean and efficient as benefits a 21st century media organisation! happy.gif)

What is happening is that the site detects you as being connected to a US ISP and therefore blocks you. To access the site you need to go via a UK VPN (Virtual Private Network) IP tunnelling service, which will make you look as though you are in the UK. I can't recommend one, but if you Google uk vpn tunnelling that should get you started. I think you will find that most of the good services require a small subscription.

In these pages, I believe you have claimed not to watch any television programmes. You may therefore be unaware that a rich variety of radio and television channels are available for less per day than I pay for one of my daily newspapers - or less than the cost of a bottle of milk. It could hardly become cheaper! Also, when I point out that you receive all BBC web services for the princely sum of 61 pence per month I think you are making an unreasonable judgment, especially considering that "The Times" now plans to charge one pound a day to view its online edition (or two pounds a week).

I will admit to being a chip off the monolith and not everything they do now is to my liking, but I feel the need to defend the organisation against an unfair attack.

I enjoyed the snippet on the download; that particular scene reminded me of a popular BBC program show: Faulty Towers. It's good clean fun without taking itself too seriously. There is nothing wrong with a little bit of role play. Without seeing in it context I really can't make that judgment.

As a footnote about TV here. The Screen Actor's Guild, President Reagan was head of before becoming Governor of California, s few years ago went on strike and down went prime time soap operas like Dallas, Dynasty and Knott's Landing, all quality shows with first rate stars and then to take their place so as to break the strike came inane game shows, two from the UK being: "Who Wants to be a Millionaire and Deal No Deal", Opinionated News Show, CNN 24 hour News as well as reality TV shows and all are the ruination of TV IMHO.

Re: Your TV Tonight

April 20 2010, 4:18 AM 

Hi hcj. Not proper to this thread, as indeed anything except announcements of forthcoming TV programmes is not proper to this thread (hint, hint - and not to you hcj happy.gif). With regard to your comments on my attack on the BBC, I think that attack was entirely fair. However the organisation I was last employed by wasn't loved by some people either, and I fully understand your sentiments in defending something you gave part of your life to, so a brief explanation of my position.

First, I don't 'claim' not to watch any TV programmes. I do not watch or record any broadcast TV programmes at my property, and have not done so for many years. Hence I do not need and do not buy a TV licence. This arose because, about to renew my licence, I happened to work out how much TV I'd watched in the previous year. It came to about 2 hours, and I decided that was poor value for over £100 and that I could live without it.

I do see TV at a house I visit regularly (almost daily in fact) where the TV is on most of the time and the occupant does buy a licence. My visits there have nothing to do with watching TV, but I perforce have to do this, unless I face the wall or wear a blindfold. What I tend to see between conversation is about an hour and a half of BBC news channel and BBC1 news and local news - unless they are frittering away news time at a Tiger Woods press conference or interviewing some entertainment nonentity at great length or similar, an increasingly frequent happening. This annoys the owner of the TV (and indeed me, but obviously I am not entitled to comment) and channels get switched to Sky News, CNN etc., until a channel still broadcasting news is found. Thus I see quite a lot of other news channels.

I used to regard the BBC as the jewel in the crown of British media. I don't any more. I'll fight to the death for Radio 4 and the World Service, and I'd like to see BBC1 survive. If I could pay just for those services I'd happily do so. As for the rest of the BBC, including the news channel, and especially the web site, if it eventually gets the bullet I shan't shed any tears. The web site in particular is an abomination. It unnecessarily duplicates material readily available elsewhere and threatens the existence of local newspapers. The ludicrous iPlayer service consumes so much of the already limited UK broadband bandwidth that all UK ISPs have complained about it, and we all pay more for our broadband and suffer an inferior service because of it.

Lastly, and the main factor in my change of attitude, the BBC employs and controls the TV Licensing Organisation, which is the most malignant, malicious and mendacious organisation in the UK. I have fought a battle with them for years, and, for the time being at least, I've won, but to do so I have had to be as unpleasant and aggressive as my opponents. I have a friend who doesn't watch TV either and his experience has been similar. The BBC is well aware of the nature of TV Licensing. There's more than enough in the press and on the web about it. They choose not to take any action, so in my eyes they're just as guilty.

Czech Film : Postriziny

May 19 2010, 6:06 PM 

[linked image]

Nearly thirty years after its theatrical release, Postriziny remains a reference in the field of spanking in the cinema. There was no better, I think it that this scene of a major emotional strength. The eroticism of the situation had not escaped the Czech director who had served in the charming presence of Magda Vasaryova to expand simply register a spanking administered to a young woman in a domestic discipline accepted by both partners. He wanted the public spanking that adds to the confusion of the situation but obviously not despair the young punished. Instead, she makes a gesture to get her own delicious underwear but her partner decided to stop the charges. The end of the stage, which is also the end of the film shows us two lovebirds lying on the tender grass for frolicking more intimate than the camera will film fortunately does not. Regardless, the only spanked us fills.

Are there any Hungarians out there that can tell us what is going on here? Are the girls confessing faults and asking to be punished? Have they been sent to the program by someone offended by what they said or did and have accepted the punishment of receiving a spanking in front of a national audience? Has anyone seen these videos before? They are mainstream and not fetish by Hungarian standards.

IMO they seem to be on the verge of crying after their spanking and somewhat reluctant to accept the consequence just before the punishment. It is as if they have accepted in theory but were having second thougts about submitting? Am I right about it being a punishment as opposed to a dare or a fetish wanting to be fulfilled on the girls part? Certainly the guys seem to be into a sadomasochist scene by their instruments of correction.

Tirol: The Golden Journey by Leslie Charteris had a rather vigorous spanking of Erica Rogers by Sir Roger Moore as The Saint. That story has roots that go back to 1934 Harpers Magazine and to the Saint in Europe in 1953. By the time the television program was aired in 1962 was too late to be in the age of innocence.

It won't becoming on your TV tonight unless you have a nostalgia network but if you had it you would be inundated with Westerns from the age of innocence with racism and sexism (skip to #:30 in the video and get a taste. . The way woman and race are treated involve IMHO a confluence of these factors and the popularity of Westerns. Here are just a few: Gunsmoke, Rifleman, Wagon Train, Palladin, Maverick, Bat Masterson and my sister's favorite growing up Rawhide with Clint Eastwood.

Let's get back to school corporal punishment confluence. Although three to four more times boys are paddle there was even a greater discrepancy in the age of innocence. He had nothing to do with male paddling females but females abiding or finding it easier to abide by codes of conduct. Heads of household and of schools were men and were spare the rod folks. That is true now more in the deep south (I use that adjective purposively). Now, Google News corporal punishment and look at the controversies that surround school CP and it is obvious that there has always been a reticence to hit girls with more than a feather.

Back to the Westerns. The popularity of this escapism had a lot to do with reinforcing stereotypes that have now long been abandoned. They were popular during the time of the code because of their rectitude. Rifleman was as moralistic than you could even imagine.

Young girls were married and were often spoiled by their fathers and needed to be handled with a firm hand. Many of the men viewers would like to have the sanction less right to do so as the last link attests to.

Lastly, I do not deliberately try to be surrealistic nor do I know how. If some find it difficult to read my postings than move on. I write the way Id and have no intention to modify to appease my critics. These links relate to racism. The present skew in numbers has a lingering trace of this as attested to by my OCR figures.

I transferred this from the president thread though it pertains to presidents for TV lovers. Unlike our esteemed good Doctor hardly ever watch it. I don't know how he finds the time? I still cannot picture him watching Buffy and the Vampire.

Angie Dickinson left the silver screen for TV around 1971; she recently was quoted as saying that she was too old for hot pants when she turned 40 as she was brutally told.

Dr. Kildare is available on Netflix but not as reruns. The episodes are around March 1965 and the show was precedent setting with many Doctor shows to follow until today where it has reached its saturation point. She was recently voted the second sexiest women in television history. Diana Rigg as Emma Peel finished first.

Angie Dickinson famously said I dress for women and undress for men; I certainly hope note with JFK or Reagan. She will be 80 in September and has lost none of her beauty or charm. The first picture is from Dr Kildare who spanked her. What a waste. He was gay. sad.gif

Now, as men in their fifties and sixties, and strengthened by the group, they want the truth to come out. Twenty two men have started legal proceedings against the Rosminian Order for compensation.

Hi American Way,

We've had this discussion before, but I'll try again. Although we're probably in the majority we Brits don't look for many special privileges on this estimable Forum.

One of the things we do like though is the advanced warning that Google Box very kindly gives us of forthcoming British TV programs - forthcoming as in 'next 24 hours'. It doesn't seem too much to ask that this thread be left free for that purpose as that's what it was started for.

I don't have a TV, but even I used to like to know what I was missing. If it was something totally unmissable I could always blag my way in front of an unsuspecting friend's telly and persuade them to watch the program.

Now however, although Goggle Box is still doing his best, his vital information is buried in a mass of US TV stuff, and not even forthcoming (as in next 24 hours) stuff!

Please, why not start your own TV thread and leave this one for its intended purpose?



Re: Your TV Tonight

Hi Prof.n,

I apologise to Google Box for doing what I've criticised American Way for, but I can't really start a new thread just to reply to you. However, there may be a bonus. If Renee is reading this the event featured in my recent animated link is an absolute certainty, so watch this space, or rather that space! And just remind me about that brace position again. Luckily the post conference room procedure seems to have gone off the schedule so I can face my fate with equanimity. happy.gifwink.gifhappy.gif

I don't miss 'all that choice from the land of the free'. I frequently visit my brother, who has travelled extensively in the US, loves the country, loves the culture, or rather the cultures, and most of all loves Baseball and American Football, the statistics and facts of which he can recite ad indefinitum. He has all the TV facilities you mention, and while I haven't a clue what Glee and 90210 are, and I doubt if he has either (if they're what I suspect wink.gif), he does watch lots and lots of Baseball and American Football.

I can't make any sense of either game despite his expert instruction, and find them both incredibly boring. Slow, overly complex, and apparently designed to produce as many breaks for TV ads as possible. I quite like the cheerleaders, but they only seem to come on camera for ludicrously short periods. sad.gif If I've got to watch team ball games, a ridiculous concept anyway, give me Rugby and Cricket every time!

Yes, I saw the John Arlott programme. He describes how the headmaster used to administer canings in the large washrooms at the school which echoed and therefore the canings could be heard all over the school. He said the boys who got six could never just walk away, they would collapse and other boys would have to support them. Years later Arlott was invited to an old boys reunion and had to toast the headmaster. He didn't actually specify what he said but suggested that he told him exactly what he thought of him. The school was named , it's in Hampshire, but I don't know whether it is still going.

Thanks for clarification on John Arlott. I was(am)a major fan. As an aside I had a master at school who walloped with a bat suitable for a young lad. He was my sportsmaster of course.Didn't hurt the bum too much - mainly symbolic.
I found Just Henry to be a good drama and you can get it on ITV iplayer. About 17 mins in there is a fight followed by a strapping on hands of 2 lads about 13/14. Female teacher delivers the punishment and boys put hands under their arms just as all school kids did to relieve the pain

Thanks for the tip about Just Henry. An enjoyable drama even if there was no strapping in it. The strapping scene was realistic with the boys showing pain. Too often we see canings or strappings in films where the receiver just shrugs it off. Pity that rather attractive girl didn't get it.

An example would be where Ann Todd got the cane , but I cannot trace it. It was a 1940s film with James Mason, anyone know the title , or a link to the caning?

Re: Your TV Tonight

December 22 2011, 3:37 PM 

The wonders of Google! Unfamiliar with 'The Seventh Veil' quoted by our most esteemed TV and Film Critic Goggle Box above, I googled "the seventh veil" caning in Google Images with safe search off to see if I could find Declan a picture.

What should I find on the eighth row of links but an image of Another_Lurker climbing and a link to this thread in this estimable Forum! Curiously, if I switch safe search to 'moderate' it doesn't come up until the 12th row, the opposite of what common sense would predict, but that's another matter!

Sadly Steve frequently used the Network54 Temporary Realm to store his images, so the image of James Mason, described as:

probably about to cane Anne Todd on the hand, in The Seventh Veil(1945)

is long gone. sad.gif

There is a very good TV programme called Great British Railway Journeys, with Michael Portillo. ( Portillo is a former Conservative MP who was well known as a member of the John Major government in the 1990s).

He travels on certain railway lines and stops off and gives a little potted history of the place he is visiting. The other day he went to Windsor and Eton station and interviewed the present headmaster of Eton. This guy told the story of the legendary Dr Keate , who was headmaster of Eton in the 1840s, about the time he flogged about 100 boys and all these boys were cheering him on in admiration for his effort and stamina.

I have just heard on the radio ( Radio 5 live) that Fiona Phillips is on the radio this evening saying some bad stuff about her school days . No idea what she is going to say , but she has previously said that she had been slippered at school. I will try to find out more details .

express.co.uk excerpt:


Friday October 26,2012

By John Chapman

PUPILS and teachers sat back eagerly to listen as one of their school's most famous old girls returned to celebrate its proudest day.

But what television presenter Fiona Phillips had to say shocked and outraged the distinguished audience.

Instead of praising its achievements in being rebranded as an academy, the guest speaker ripped into the school with a blistering, no-holds-barred attack on the education she got there.

Ms Phillips claimed Millbrook School in Southampton transformed her from a promising pupil into a "vile teenager". She said it crushed her aspirations and left her with just one O-level.

"I went in and said I wanted to be a doctor and they said 'Have you thought about hairdressing?" she went on.

Ms Phillips told how she and schoolmates locked a teacher in a cupboard and threw another over a bush.

The audience listened stunned as she said former head Fred Lowry "commanded no respect whatsoever".

[. . .]


Fiona Phillips

October 27 2012, 9:49 AM 

I wonder whether "throwing a teacher over a bush" was something she was punished for - I'm pretty sure it would register at the high end of Dr. Dominum's scale of offences and merit a good six of the best, and Millbrook was a caning school after all.

IMO you can reasonably blame a school for failing to inspire you to fulfil your potential, but when it comes to your own actions of assault and vandalism they are squarely down to yourself.

Re: Your TV Tonight

November 1 2012, 11:37 AM 

I caught the very end of a programme called " Home to Roost" starring John Thaw , the other day. We had Thaw and his 16 year old son in the headmaster's office. The Head had a cane on his desk and started flexing it about . The boy appeared to have his hands under his armpits as though he had just been caned.

The scene then moved on , and this boy stole the cane from the headnaster's desk, and then produced it to his father later on . The whole scene was regarded as a bit of a joke and no-one got caned . It was made in 1985. The cane shown looked far too heavy to be used on the hands , nothing like the much thinner canes used when I was at school.

It's on ITV PLayer ITV 3, just the last few minutes if you are interested.


Re: Your TV Tonight

November 1 2012, 3:23 PM 

Well spotted Declan!

It's certainly an authentic cane, unlike some that have been seen in TV programmes. It looks to be a shortish 10mm, more suitable for use on the buttocks than the hands, and quite capable of delivering a real school punishment.


Re: Your TV Tonight

November 1 2012, 7:39 PM 

That cane looked very much like a prop.In my day ( as they say ) the cane used was much thinner , whether it was used on the buttocks or hand . Still, it was interesting to see that in 1985 the cane was regarded as a bit of a joke. That scene if produced today would be regarded with outrage

Well, props are often real items and the point I was making was that this one isn't the kind of cane you find in a fancy dress shop. I agree that many school canes were thinner, and the general view in my school was that long thin ones were the worst. But in my experience, the one in the TV show is by no means untypical. Unfortunately, I no longer have my collection of canes or I would post a photograph to give some idea of the range.

The Secet of Crickley Hall

November 19 2012, 10:01 AM 

The Secert of Crickley Hall is a BBC drama which was shown last night, Sunday 18th at 9,pm

It is a somewhat confusing drame which flits between the present day and 1940. There are references to the cane as used by an old schoolmaster in 1940. You see very brief glimpses of the cane being used, and also punishment books. The lead role is played by Surrane Jones who may be familiar to Coronation Street fans.

At one stage Surrane awakes from a dream and looks at her hand which has a cane mark on it. Her daughter then is caned at the very end , but it really isn't all that clear.

Worth a look though , it will still be up on BBC Player for a week .


Re: Your TV Tonight

Hi Goggle Box,

I am greatly indebted to you for the above advance warning! I doubt that I'd have noticed the programme left to myself.

Beryl Burton was one of my cycling heroes - or rather heroines. In the days when cycling in Britain was a Cinderella sport, unknown, unappreciated and unreported outside the specialist media, she dominated women's events at home and worldwide.

I saw her ride many times on the road and on the track. For me her greatest ride will always be the 1967 Otley CC 12 hour time trial. She set off a minute behind Mike McNamara, who was on his way to setting a new men's 12 hour record of 276.8 miles and winning the 1967 Men's British Best All-Rounder competition based on average speed over 50 and 100 miles and 12 hours.

After 233 miles Beryl caught and passed Mike, reputedly handing him a liquorice sweet as she went by. She went on to do 277.25 miles in the 12 hours, finishing 43 seconds early, because the next bit of the finishing circuit was uphill, and she didn't fancy riding up another hill! It was a further two years before the Men's 12 hour record overtook the Women's record again. Beryl's Women's 12 hour record still stands.

Beryl Burton was not coached and cared for in the way that Britain's current top cyclists are. She remained an amateur rider throughout her career, and as well as being a housewife and mother she worked on a farm owned by Nim Carline, himself a cycling 24 hour record holder in 1966 at 496.37 miles.

On this YouTube video watch Beryl Burton winning the 1967 Women's World Road Cycling Championship in September 1967, the same month that she set her 12 hour record. And in the second part of the clip, 19 years later in 1986 riding in a club time trial, and still pushing her characteristic big gear!

And for those who'd like to see a little more of the greatest woman cyclist ever, another YouTube video. Doctor's advice on being told that she'd taken up cycling: "if the hills get too hard you must get off and walk, I'm sure the boys will wait for you". happy.gifwink.gifhappy.gif Beryl had had very poor health in childhood, and at one stage spent 15 months in hospital and convalescent homes with rheumatic fever.

Another interesting episode of ths ghost story. Quite a concentration on punishment books , with the modern owner of the house finding old punishment books hidden away, and leafing through pages and pages. Some of the orphans were getting 40 strokes.

We saw one boy getting it on the hand , and once again the lead role , played by Suranne Jones , is shown with a cane mark on her hand. The old headmaster , or a ghost of , is seen wielding his cane at a teenage girl at the end , though he is just swishing his cane about , and it is not a formal punishment


Re: Your TV Tonight

November 29 2012, 12:43 PM 

Not much response to my comments about Crickley Hall, quite a good show even without the CP references .

I saw the very last bit of an old programme called " Man about the House" This wads a 1970s show starring Richard O'Sullivan and Paula Wilcox on ITV3. It was about a man sharing a flat with two very attractive girls.

O'Sullivan , playing a character called Robin has been done for drink driving and is in the Magistrates Court. He is waiting to be called in and says to his girlfriend " This is like waiting outside the headmaster's study", and she replies " He could only give you six of the best , this guy could give you six months "

Althoughj I haven't seen the recent re showings of this show , which was a huge success when it was first shown , there have been many comments on message boards about how the modern remakes have been censored to remove any references to sexist or racist remarks. At least they didn't delete the CP reference.

There were references to slippering on the BBC drama " Death in Paradise " a couple of days ago. This is a rather light hearted murder mystery based in a West Indian Island, but featuring a very attractive French /West Indian lady .

The episode involved a murder of a nun, and the English detective admitted that he was afraid of nuns because of the hell they gave him at school , included many slipperings. At one stage a nun turned up and said to him " I haven't brought my slipper"

It did remind me of my days at junior school where there was a Catholic School just up the road. Some boys from my school chalked some abusive comments about nuns on the walls of the Catholic School, and when found out were severely slippered ( not me this time ! )

I went to Catholic schools, primary and secondary, in the 60s and 70s. The odd thing was that it wasn't the priests or nuns who beat us on the backside. Sure, they used a ruler on our fingers or a blackboard rubber on our knuckles, but it was the other male teachers who used the slipper or strap frequently, often for little or no good reason. And yes it really stung. If you were really unlucky you could end up getting caned, on the backside, which only happenned to me twice.
