Not in Our Class Dear

Trevor Philpott investigates how class is categorised and its importance in market research. He asks whether old snobberies are dead or whether they're merely being replaced by new prejudices. He talks to people from a variety of backgrounds and examines how class seems dependent upon employment, money, education and use of language. (1966)

The social model referred to in this programme is based on occupation: A = professional, B = managerial and technical, C1 = skilled non-manual, C2 = skilled manual, D = partly skilled occupations and E = non-skilled occupations. How class is categorised, however, is disputed and complex.
