Queens’: A Cambridge College – Episode 1: Getting In

In 1985 the BBC produced a series detailing the life in a college in the University of Cambridge.

In this episode we follow a number of students going through the application process.

Unfortunately the transfer ends abruptly, before the results are revealed. In episode 2 the documentary follows the ones who got in.

  • I loved this series at the time. End of epsiode 1 slightly cut short – do you have the rest? Were there more than 8 épisodes in total? Thanks

  • Very interesting, if for nothing else than to see how it was done 30 years ago. It seems rather formal and stiff, even Patrician, but many of the students were really, really impressive. I wish I could know what happened in some of their careers.
