In this series, James reassembles a whole host of objects which have been carefully taken apart to all their hundreds of individual component parts. Each episode focuses on one object and carefully puts it back together, screwing every screw, tightening every bolt and vigilantly rebuilding the object to its complete form, then testing its competency having gone through the process. As well as learning the history of the objects, we get a history of the component parts. As James rebuilds an engine, he explains the cylinders, what they are, how they came about and what they do. Episodes featured: '1959 Suffolk Colt petrol lawnmower 331 parts', '1957 GPO British Bakerlite telephone 211 parts', '1984 Fender electric guitar 147 parts'. Plus a bonus 45 minutes never seen on TV.
Gary Oldman is Clive ‘Bex’ Bissell, an intelligent family man with a good job, who also happens to be the leader of the notorious East London hooligan firm, the Inner City Crew. Bex plans to unite rival gangs into a national firm to take to the European Championships, but that will mean defeating Oboe’s Birmingham crew and the South London Buccaneers led by arch rival Yeti (Phil Davis). As Bex’s craving for violence becomes an obsession, events spiral out of control. Alan Clarke’s unflinching drama courted much controversy when it was first broadcast in a toned down version on the BBC. Now, it is rightly considered a masterpiece, due in no small part to the brilliance of Oldman’s central performance – one of the finest of his career. Newly transferred in HD, and available on Blu-ray for the very first time, The Firm is presented here in two versions: the never-before-seen Director’s Cut, which re-instates a number of bold sequences previously considered too controversial for audiences; and the original BBC TV broadcast version. The complete Alan Clarke at the BBC is also available in DVD and Blu-ray box sets from the BFI.

Mike Gunn is one of the UK's top stand-up comedians. You might well have seen him on TV in shows such as The Comedy Store, Live At Jongleurs or Harry Hill's TV Burp. You might have, but you probably didn't. You might have seen him in any one of countless TV appearances he'd rather he'd never made. They were probably the ones you caught; channel-surfing aimlessly at half past three in the morning and staring at some obscure cable station, wondering what the bald bloke was talking about. You were probably too pissed to care... This is what Mike Gunn does best. Knocking audiences dead in the world's greatest comedy club. Live, on stage at The London Comedy Store, he storms through 45 minutes of the funniest stuff you're ever likely to hear, and tackling everything from the Middle-East crisis to why some people should never be allowed to have children, he's guaranteed to upset almost everyone. 1.

Learn about the idea that everyone has 15 Minutes of Fame with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Commenting on the increasingly fleeting nature of celebrity, in 1968 artist Andy Warhol quipped: “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes”. In a twenty first-century world of reality TV and YouTube, it appears Warhol’s prediction has come true. The changing nature of celebrity over time is an interesting backdrop to today’s short-lived fame. In the Middle Ages, only the monarchy and high aristocracy could claim to have anything like what we would call fame today. But with the absence of mass communication, most people did not even know what the king looked like. The imprint of his head on coins did not need to bear any likeness to reality because representation of power was seen as more important than any recognition in appearance.

Marketing in schools is a widespread phenomenon in which schools sign contracts allowing certain businesses to conduct marketing activities in school facilities primarily advertising. For example, a school might allow only one brand of soft drink to be sold in vending machines on the campus, in return, the soft drink company would provide compensation to the school (frequently money, but it may provide other compensation as well, such as building new facilities or paying for school supplies). The phrase usually refers to arrangements by elementary schools or high schools, rather than higher education, because this marketing is seen as targeting children, it is very controversial. One example of this is Channel One News, an "educational" TV show shown in schools that shows two minutes of advertising. Channel One is shown in over 11,500 middle and high schools across the United States, reaching 7.7 million students.
