Prof Henry Piston is joined in his office by fellow academics George and Derek. George reveals his forthcoming armadillo research project, and Derek his diversification into plastics manufacturing, whilst educational standards, the role of committees and the value of consultants all come under the comic spotlight. Meanwhile hapless secretaries Susan and Amanda try their best to understand Henry’s idea of the alphabet, and the rules which determine how degrees are classified.
