In 2004, the board of the public school in Dover, Pennsylvania ordered science teachers to read a statement to high school biology students suggesting that that is an alternative to Darwin's theory of evolution called intelligent design - the idea that life is too complex to have evolved naturally and therefore must have been designed by an intelligent agent. The teachers refused to comply. Later, parents opposed to intelligent design filed a lawsuit in US federal court accusing the school board of violating the constitutional separation of church and state. Judgement Day: Intelligent Design on Trial follows the federal case of Kitzmiller v. Dover School District and features trial re-enactments based on court transcripts and interviews with key participants, including expert scientists and Dover parents, teachers, and town officials.

The trainees are approaching the end of the spring term, and the pace of working life is relentless for the new teachers. Science teacher Claudenia is in a gifted and talented school, but a clique of year 10 girls are becoming impossible to manage. Claudenia must decide whether a confrontation is the best solution. And as the term ends, she begins to question whether teaching was the right choice of career. Maths teacher Nick has taken on a life-skills lesson, which means he will be explaining about the birds and the bees to his impressionable year 7's. Unluckily for them, Mr Church knows zilch about the topic so has to draw on fellow trainee Meryl for backup. And at Lanfranc school in Croydon a fight outside the school has serious consequences for one of Charles' pupils.
