Series 1, Episode 1 - Partners

We return to the crazy world of "pile 'em high Hayborough University". The buzz word is "partners" - get out into the real world and work with industry, this will develop money spinning initiatives and share costs - that's the theory anyway. So when neurotic and emotionally stunted lecturer David Poll is delegated the task of finding partners, he blunders into a scheme which doesn't quite benefit the department.
