Where would we be without Google, Amazon, PayPal, eBay and Match.com? How about email? So many things woven through the fabric of contemporary life began in the 1990s and none would have a bigger impact than the internet and the world wide web. Bill Gates and Microsoft dominated the decade and Steve Jobs returned to Apple. Of course there was a dark side to this brave new tech world in the form of hackers, online predators and the proliferation of pornography. The world didn't crash in Y2K but the dot-com bubble did burst, and the world would never be the same.

Bill Clinton's presidency got off to a rocky start. The most consequential of his initial missteps was his inability to reform America's health care system. As a result, the Republicans, led by Congressman Newt Gingrich gained control of both houses of Congress for the first time in decades. In addition to political problems at home, President Clinton faced military disaster in Somalia, genocide in Rwanda and ethnic cleansing in Bosnia. But as he always seemed to do, Clinton rebounded and was decisively re-elected in 1996. Just as the nation seemed to be settling into a period of genuine peace and prosperity the president was ensnared in a sex scandal with a White House intern leading to impeachment and increased political polarisation.

The Qur'an has become the most ideologically influential text in the world. Muslims believe it to be the word of God, as first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad in a cave in the Arabian Desert, nearly fifteen hundred years ago. Today Islam is a religion of vast dimensions. Well over a billion people from the Americas to China, from India to the southern tip of Africa, are Muslim. Yet within this single universe of belief, there are profound differences. But if Islam is rooted in the Qur'an, and the Qur'an is the ultimate and changeless message of God, how are these differences possible?

In the 1930s and '40s, hundreds of female musicians toured the country in glamorous all-girl bands, while others played side by side with their male counterparts.

These incredibly talented women endured sexism, racism, and diminished opportunities for decades, yet continued to persevere, inspire, and elevate their talents in a field that seldom welcomed them.

In April 1937, the Guernica massacre inspires Picasso to create a monumental canvas symbolizing the violence perpetrated by Franco's supporters and by fascism more generally. The Spanish Republic is lost, and one war ends as another begins.

The directorial debut of Mike Myers, aka Austin Powers, is a star-packed look at a legendary showbiz figure. Shep Gordon is the quintessential talent agent, a mover and a shaker who fell into the job when he met Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix on his first day in LA. His first client was Alice Cooper, his second Pink Floyd. From the weird (he once shared custody of a cat with Cary Grant) to the sublime (he once dated Sharon Stone), his stories are endlessly entertaining. His clients have some tales to tell too - Michael Douglas, Teddy Pendergrass, Sylvester Stallone, Blondie to name a few. Gordon stays on good terms with them all - including playing golf with Alice Cooper. Above it all, everyone says he's a nice guy, a person of integrity and honour, and this spirit shines throughout Myers' lively debut.
