Turn Over Your Papers Now - Practicals


John O'Farrell explores the unexpected history of the different kinds of exam, and our relationship with them. In the final programme he explores Victorian medical practicals, and why semi-naked patients volunteered to let students draw lines on them. And he finds out who examines the examiners - and what happens if they get a 'D'. Producer: Phil Tinline.
