In 1918, as the Armistice bells rang out across the world to celebrate the end of World War I, a silent killer made its way home with the soldiers - Spanish flu. This devastating global pandemic infected up to a third of the world's population and killed more than 50 million people. Now, using compelling eyewitness testimony from doctors, soldiers, civilians and politicians, and aided by dramatic reconstructions, this one-off special brings to life the terrifying onslaught of the disease, the horror for those who lived through it, and the hope of the pioneering scientists who desperately sought for a cure.

Pupils and their teachers have embarked on an extraordinary time-travelling adventure through seven eras of British history. Starting out in the age of Empire in 1895, they've lived lessons, life and dinners all the way through to the end of the 1990s, with their school as their time machine. Now they're returning for one last adventure. In this final episode of the series, the class and teachers return to school for their very own reunion party, where they'll be joined by presenter Sara Cox and social historian Polly Russell. As pupils, teachers and families celebrate together, they'll reflect on over 100 years of time travel, and explore how the legacy of the past lives on in the schools of today. But their journey isn't over yet, as our intrepid class of pupils set off to explore what the future of the classroom might look like. They'll experience the cutting-edge possibilities of virtual classrooms and contend with the unsettling notion of lessons run by artificial intelligence.
