A minor German princess with connections to Swedish royalty, the future Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia began as the handpicked bride of the future Czar. When he ascended the throne, Catherine plotted his overthrow, took power, and began to pull her country out of the dark ages. She led Russia for 30 years, creating an enviable dynasty build on cunning and ruthlessness, in addition to newfound notions of justice, progress, and a centralized government. Ahead of her time, Catherine the Great stands as a model for light in a time of great cultural and sociological darkness. In blending discussion of the facts by scholars--each presenting a particular slant on Catherine's life and conduct--with fictional recreations of pivotal events in her life, this film presents a well-rounded portrait of 18th Century Europe's most 'enlightened' despot

The new 14-19 Diplomas were rolled out in just under 150 schools nationwide in September 2008 amidst controversy as to content and worth. We talk to the teachers who have spent the past six months delivering the five pioneer subjects in: Creative and Media; IT; Construction; Engineering; and Society, Health and Development. They reveal the lessons learnt so far, including the need for painstaking planning; careful time-tabling; time for the consortia to gel; and continuing concerns around assessment. While worries about rural schools and the distance needed to be travelled by some consortia diploma pupils were well aired prior to launch, some urban schools report issues as well, in particular about post code territorialism. For instance pupils based in London E9 were unwilling to travel to N16 schools to study for their Diplomas. Interviewees include Diploma champions Sir Mike Tomlinson and Toyota boss Sir Alan Jones, as well as school staff and students
