Bonjour la Classe is a British television comedy series broadcast on BBC1 in 1993. Created and written by Paul Smith and Terry Kyan, the series centered on Laurence Didcott, a new French teacher at prestigious Mansion School. Didcott discovers a prevailing attitude at Mansion, among staff, benefactors and even students and parents, that places what's best for the school (e.g. fundraising, school image) ahead of pupils' education and well-being. The scenes at the school were shot in the winter of 1992.
