BILLY BUNTER OF GREYFRIARS SCHOOL PDF

The school lies on the fictional river Sark, upstream of the nearby village of Friardale and downstream of the market town of Courtfield. It is near the coast: the fishing village of Pegg is described as being within a mile 1. There are two other public schools nearby, Cliff House girls school and Highcliffe. Farther away are the towns of Lantham and Wapshott. Organisation[ edit ] The school consists of seven forms, loosely based on age groups. Each form has its own Form Master, who takes the majority of the lessons.

Charles Hamilton is in the Guinness Book of Records for having written more words in his lifetime than anyone else - the equivalent of full length novels. One of his many thousands of literary creations, Billy Bunter of Greyfriars School came to life in the Magnet, a weekly British boys story paper , and lived on in novels published although the last were ghosted by a substitute. With the result that now hardly anyone under 50 years old has even heard of Billy Bunter.

A testament to the modern BBC in their zealous endeavours to bury or alter modern perceptions of the past up until in other words, pre-pc is their continued refusal to even consider releasing any surviving episodes. Why not just have done and burn the tapes then, or is letting them rot in the cans the favoured cheaper option? The ancient school porter Gosling, appears in this as very helpful, around 50 years old with thinning black hair - not quite how most people would have imagined him!

The earlier series of these shows were performed live twice, once for the kids, then later in the evening for their Dads. Bunter given lines by Quelch plots revenge by stealing and temporarily hiding his Masters radio.

Nasty pair Skinner and Snoop also given lines to do take revenge on Quelch by stealing and hiding his Beethoven gold medallion. The 2 threads converge into a satisfying denouement. Young Melvyn Hayes played Skinner to the life, and yet it seemed that all of his later roles were nice guys.

Liberties of course were taken with the original stories, settings, even characters to fit into a live 30 minute TV play, but it was a job done well enough to get my moderate applause half a century later. Prout, and punches him on the nose. Prout thinks that his obtuse and sometimes violent pupil, Coker, has committed the dastardly deed and has him marked for expulsion from Greyfriars This one has young David Hemmings miscast as a stuttering bespectacled George Potter and young Michael Crawford miscast as an unusually silent Johnny Bull, these two and everyone else revolving like admiring satellites around well cast thirty-something Campion as Bunter.

What happens next is obvious to devotees, the character change in Billy amazes the natives. As it was broadcast live on TV, the 4 bits of film inserted into it meant valuable time for re-positioning etc! John Melford as Mr. Quelch was the only big let down - much too soft and personable! Kynaston Reeves who had previously played him was miles better in the role, although by the end of his tenure in the role was losing interest and fluffing his lines a little.

The BBC presented Campion with a 16mm copy of this episode when the shows finally ended in To me and maybe about a thousand people around the world, wonderful garbage, to everyone else garbage.

Greyfriars School

The Daily Telegraph and Reynolds News were among other newspapers that also provided prominent coverage. When a year-old actor, Gerald Campion , who was married with two children, was cast in the role of Bunter, a year-old schoolboy, the choice was greeted with mixed reactions. In fact Campion had already been considered for the role of Bunter, twelve years earlier, when the intention was to make a cinema film based on the character. Many of the television scripts are adaptations, based on the Greyfriars novels featuring Bunter which Charles Hamilton wrote during the s: more than three dozen such novels appeared in print between and , and many of the television scripts bear titles which echo those of particular books. Reception[ edit ] "Bunter on TV seems to have roused a lot of comment. For myself I can only repeat that I like it very much indeed. I just love watching the plays, and wish they would go on for ever.
