A very engaging talk despite the theme. Steeped in subject appreciation and emotional literacy.

At 07.09 Alex discusses a shocking outcome from research into boarding schools which was conducted in the late 1960's by the eminent sociologist Royston Lambert. Of 1100 pupils interviewed at the time, 6% reported sexual abuse or having been 'interfered with' by an adult from the school. The work was covered up 1969.
