“Full of really useful material, especially video, and as it can be used across a range of key stages it represents good value.”

Bett Awards 2011

This DVD will be part of the core teaching on this topic. It helps to capture the essence of the place, in a way that will appeal to students. The flexibility is there once again, so that as a teacher you can dip in and out of the resource to meet your requirements in the classroom or show the DVD completely. The resource uses recent information and helps up date the geography DVD collection.

Head of Geography, Bristol Grammar School

The judges liked the way it uses a topical focal point – the Olympics – as a central cross- curricular theme. A large number of subjects are integrated, including business. It was appropriate to a variety of ability levels.

They liked the way that role-play was possible in a real event/in real time: to be involved as organiser, promoter, journalist, etc.

It was full of really useful material, especially video. As it could be used across the key stages, it was seen as good value.

They liked the way it promoted collaboration.
