This epic series explores how World War I changed America and the world. Drawing on the latest scholarship, including unpublished diaries, memoirs and letters, this series tells the rich and complex story of the conflict through the voices of nurses, journalists, aviators and the American troops who came to be known as 'dough boys'. The series explores the costs and challenges of bringing America into World War I and the ways the war transformed every aspect of American life through the experiences of African-American and Latino soldiers, suffragists, Native American 'code talkers', and others whose participation has been largely forgotten.

Spirits are high on board Solquest as Matthew, Ross and Nick sail toward Maria Island, following in the wake of Baudin's French expedition in the early 1800s. If France had been a little quicker in their exploration of Tasmania, we might all be speaking French and eating baguettes for breakfast. In honour of Baudin and Freycinet, the boys enjoy meals of oysters, abalone and a bouillabaisse on the shore of Wineglass Bay.

Henry VIII is the most iconic king of English history. Once Europe's most promising and enlightened prince, he squandered Britain's riches on futile wars, and tore apart the centuries-old religious certainties of his people. Decades of religious persecution and bloodshed would follow his reign, just as tens of thousands of people were executed as a direct result of both his policies and his personal vendettas. Inside the Court of Henry VIII pulls back the veil to expose the vicious rivalries and conspiracies that characterised his court, where a new breed of man could gain power.

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.

Our pupils and teachers arrive in their final time-travelling decade, the 1990s. Ready to embrace the decade that gave us girl power, Brit pop, Oasis, Blur and the Gladiators, our pupils arrive at their comprehensive school. Their first lesson taps into a moment of pop culture we all remember - Italia '90, and the pupils take the chance to trade football stickers. The canteen is still stocked sky-high with fast food and in this era they'll have potato smiley faces and turkey drummers added to the menu, along with cans of apple Tango and bottles of Panda Pops cherryade. In 1992, they have a treat in store, as a very special guest from the Gladiators joins them to kick-start the eliminator with a blow on her whistle. By the mid-'90s, it's time for the class to connect with the wider world and embrace the joys of fundraising. As the world becomes more accessible, their computer class gives them the chance to connect to the dial-up modem and access the very first world wide web.

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.
