The children were selected to represent the range of socio-economic backgrounds in Britain at that time, with the explicit assumption that each child's social class predetermines their future. Director Michael Apted returns twenty-one years on as the subjects, now aged twenty-eight, talk about their lives and their hopes the future.

The story of the Gallipoli campaign is everlasting. It is a story of endeavour, courage, tragedy, great achievements and great sacrifices. It is a story of young nations and old coming together in conflict. It is, most of all, a human story. This story is woven into the fabric of Australia, New Zealand and Turkey. Millions of words have been written about the campaign, but the story has never been 'narrated' musically, until now.

This docu-drama tells the story of the Battle of Waterloo, one of the most famous military campaigns in history. Within four days it changed the face of Europe, ending the systematic use of arms and the French domination of the Continent. In 1815, Austria, Prussia, Russia and the United Kingdom had allied themselves to end the rule of one of the greatest commanders and statesmen in history, Napoleon Bona-parte. At this point, he was considered a military genius, and was the ruler of most Western European countries. Hour by hour, even minute by minute in some cases, each decisive event of the battle is depicted. Historians discuss contradictions and inexplicable behaviour, to separate myth from truth, based on the most recent research findings. Beyond the historical facts, we discover how the Waterloo Campaign was experienced by the men involved, its key figures; Napoleon, the Duke of Wellington (the Allies' Field Marshal) and Blucher (Head of the Prussian Army), members of chiefs-of-staff and by the soldiers in both camps.

Traces the long and ferocious rivalry between Coke and Pepsi, centred on the 'New Coke' debacle of 1985. For almost a hundred years, Coke had been the undisputed leader in the multibillion-dollar global soda industry - stodgy, predictable, but indisputably top dog - while Pepsi had been the upstart No.2, forever poking at its big brother with cutting edge advertising. But in 1985, in a stranger-than-fiction twist, Coca-Cola's executives took a step so daring that no-one in either company could believe it: they changed the formula of the most popular beverage on the planet.

Compelling, intelligent, and highly entertaining, the film visits with the world's top experts and comes to a startling, but logical conclusion, our industrial society, built on cheap and readily available oil, must be completely re-imagined and overhauled.
