Our pupils and teachers arrive in the 1980s. The focus of teaching is all about competition, entrepreneurialism and technology. Their first lesson embraces the technological revolution as the teacher unveils a cutting edge gadget, a 2XL robot. With the latest BBC microcomputers making their way into schools in 1982, this very 21st-century tech-addicted class try out a new math program. In 1983, with the arrival of affordable synthesisers, the class get the chance to embrace the booming synthpop industry in the UK in their music lesson. And there's a very special guest, Nik Kershaw, who listens to them playing some smash hits, before performing his own song especially for them. Inspired by their new love for synth, the kids, parents and teachers rock out to some of the most iconic tunes of the decade at their very '80s school disco. In 1985, the teachers go on strike, so the kids head to a local park where they get stuck in to a class '80s past-time, breakdancing to Run DMC.

Our time-travelling pupils and teachers arrive in the 1970s. It's out with the old and in with the new as they leave behind their 1960s Secondary Modern and embrace the experimental '70s and a comprehensive. In their first lesson, the boys and girls are finally mixed, as they learn about commerce and air travel; complete with a life-size model plane structure in the classroom. Role playing sees some of the class try their hand at being a pilot, air hostess or air traffic control, while others are confined to being the passengers and commenting on the service. In 1973, thanks to the bold demands of the Schools Action Union, this comprehensive becomes a free school and abandoning the rules has the teachers more than a little worried. Changing attitudes in the '70s mean that our class are taught progressive new ideas. Embracing diversity, dissecting the words of Pink Floyd, complete with incense burning, and digging up worms on the school playing field, are all part of the experience.

Narrated by Tom Selleck. Sunday, December 7, 1941 was a beautiful morning on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. A few sailors and soldiers were already up and playing a game of football near Pearl Harbor. Others were sleeping in their barracks or aboard ships after a late night of partying in Honolulu. An unlucky few were wiping the sleep from their eyes and reporting for duty aboard their ship anchored off Ford Island in Pearl Harbor. Still others headed for adjacent Hickam Field or up north to Wheeler Field. Ship decks were being washed, planes wiped down and hangars swept. It was just another day in paradise. At 7.55am all that changed as the first Japanese planes dropped their torpedoes and bombs on a stunned American Pacific fleet. The US had been violently thrown into World War II. Every sailor, airman, soldier and civilian who was in or near Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 has their own individual story of courage, fear, heroics or tragedy. No two stories from that day of infamy are the same. From sailors on the USS Arizona and West Virginia on Battleship Row to pilots at Hickam and Wheeler Fields, to young children who were waved at by Japanese pilots flying over their homes, the memories remain vivid to this day. These are some of their stories from December 7, 1941. They will always Remember Pearl Harbor.
