Goodbye Mr. Chips: PBS rebroadcasts this BBC drama, based on James Hilton's novel, on February 27, 2005, at 9 p.m. Mr. Chips is the much-loved schoolmaster who devotes his life to Brookfield school and its generations of schoolboys in this poignant, classic story of a man who becomes a truly inspirational teacher. Martin Clunes stars as an eccentric schoolmaster who lives a full, rich life in the cloistered world of an English boysÂ’ school in this adaptation based on James Hilton's beloved novella. Love and heartbreak, setbacks and success all come his way in a career that extends from Queen Victoria's reign to the aftermath of World War I.
