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.

Michael Buerk looks at the creation of mass manufacturing, which meant that goods could be produced at a rate that had never been seen before. In Manchester, he learns how engineer George Stephenson created the first intercity railway, so that cotton could be transported quickly and cheaply from Liverpool docks to Manchester's mills. Michael also discovers how the sewing machine - newly created in 1851 - created the rag trade, and visits what was probably the first shopping mall in the UK, the Burlington Arcade in London.
