The Vice Chancellor has to restructure the faculties of Arts, Humanities and Performing Arts into two faculties. This means "Scoping synergies using robust but flexible procedures so that they can maintain a missionary posture". In other words - someone's for the chop.

Meanwhile in Epithea David is preparing to launch his Centre for Pier and Wharf ethics. But the President keeps on mentioning 'Baksheesh'.

Starring Sophie Thompson, Jonathan Keeble and Jeremy Swift.
