This Man Craig

This Man Craig was a TV drama series produced by BBC Scotland and screened over 52 episodes in 1966 and 1967. It was set in a secondary school in the fictional Scottish town of Strathaird. Episodes were filmed at Glasgow’s Bellahouston Academy and Knightswood School. The series dealt with the everyday issues affecting both staff and pupils at Strathaird School, and in particular the title character, idealistic science teacher and housemaster Ian Craig (played by John Cairney).

The first series was shown over 26 episodes between January 7, 1966 and July 1, 1966. The second series was shown over 26 episodes between September 17, 1966 and March 21, 1967. Only two episodes are known to be still in existence in the BBC Archives. The opening sequence showed Ian Craig driving over the Forth Road Bridge, which at the time was newly built and a Scottish cultural icon.
