The Headmaster of Albion House has been at the school for 50 years. Now he is retiring and takes part in the end-of-year entertainment for the last time. Entitled 'Speak For England, Arthur' it weaves together a multi-generational story of England and the yearning for times that are now long gone.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the first performance of Alan Bennett's play Forty Years On, Alan Bennett himself stars in this adaption for BBC Radio.
