"50 years on, you realise how lucky you’ve been and what a great opportunity you had in the 1960s. Like many young people from a hard-up working class background in 1965 I was the first in my family to go to university – only made possible by being given a full local authority grant for my fees and maintenance."

"Bradford Institute of Technology, BIT in 1965, was an ultramodern building bordered by cobbled streets lit by gaslight. At just 17, I was the youngest Chemistry student in the company of other very mature students who wore suits and ties, reflecting the fact that many were sent by their employers. Immediately recruited by the Film Society as a projectionist, I later helped form the student union's Technical Services Association (TSA)."
