As Children's Rebellion demonstrates, the Americans have no monopoly on fact-based TV movies. Eileen Atkins stars in this British tale of populism triumphant. Atkins plays one of two teachers, fired for a variety of contradictory reasons by their local school board. Incensed, the young students-some of them very young-stage a protest march, demanding that their favorite teachers be reinstated. First telecast in 1985, Children's Rebellion made its American TV bow the following year, courtesy of the A&E cable network.
