Mainstream GCSE is a BBC schools radio series from the 1980s and 1990s, covering various topics for secondary school pupils.

  • magazine programmes presented by Simon Mayo and Susie Grant with up-to-date information on various GCSE subjects such as Biology, Music, English and History
  • programmes begin with a menu of the contents - they are specifically designed to be tape-recorded and copied to be distributed to pupils and teachers (the BBC catalogue specifically says "it's worth making several copies of the programme so students can use it as a resource. In any case, please pass on your cassette to colleagues for their use as well" - BBC Education Secondary Radio 1987-8 catalogue p.2)
