9-B is the single most dreaded number-letter combination in a tough Canadian high school. It is in room 9-B that the school's most brutish, least teachable students converge on a daily basis. And here is where many an idealistic new teacher has met his or her Waterloo. But British-born instructor Robert Wisden has no intention of admitting defeat: he's going to get through to, and win over, the denizens of 9-B if it kills him. Made for Canadian television, this above-the-border variation on Blackboard Jungle and To Sir With Love first aired in the US in 1987 over the Lifetime Cable Network.
