Full Plot

Cornelius Carrington comes to Porterhouse to make his film but it is an act of revenge for unhappy student days and he distorts the result to make the college seem like a salacious hotbed of sex. Skullion is interviewed live on his television show where he becomes a national hero for exposing the bribery and buying of degrees represented by his list. This plays into Sir Godber's hands as he intends to make all college decisions by himself in future. As the dean takes the list to Sir Cathcart to blackmail several luminaries into defeating Sir Godber,Skullion,who has been left shares now worth half a million pounds by a former master,takes them to Sir Godber to bargain for his job back but in the resultant argument Sir Godber hits his head on a wall. Soon afterwards he dies,mouthing 'Skullion' but the dean assumes he is announcing the name of his successor. Skullion is duly made the new master and the college returns to its old excesses thanks to his money though the shock gives him a Porterhouse blue. don @ minifie-1 Plot not found
