The ‘noughties’ was a turbulent decade, with things seemingly changing faster than we could keep up with! Addictive social media platforms saturated our daily lives, and the innovation of technology made films more popular and accessible than ever before. We bring together four iconic films that celebrate this decade: Eminem starred in the American hip-hop biopic 8 Mile; Matt Damon played a spy on the run in The Bourne Identity; Mamma Mia! was a musical sensation with an all-star cast; and there was British zombie madness with Simon Pegg in Shaun of the Dead.

It is 1777, in a colonial America where the internet, social media, and ubiquitous electronic communications are fully woven into the fabric of society. Hours after a top-secret Congressional sub-committee uploads the Articles of Confederation, a mysterious internet plague breaks loose in the cloud, killing any user who accesses a networked device. Seven in ten Americans are dead, the internet is abandoned. Seizing the moment, the British take control of New York and Philadelphia, scattering what little remains of the rebellion. Just when all seems lost, George Washington reappears from off-the-grid to pin the British army at Yorktown. Independence is won, but with the countryside in ruins and internet commerce impossible, the former colonies teeter on the brink of collapse. Meeting in secret, a faction of the Founding Fathers code a new error-proof operating system designed to stabilize the cloud and ensure everlasting American prosperity. Not everyone is happy with the new format. Believing the draconian regulations of the new OS a betrayal of the hard-fought revolution, Thomas Jefferson organizes a feisty, small-government opposition to fight the overreach of Washington’s Federalist administration. Their most valuable weapon is Doctor Benjamin Franklin’s Dream America, a new open-source social networking portal which will revolutionize representative government, return power to the people, and make Congress and the Presidency irrelevant…. 1.

Waiting for Godot. The Importance of Being Earnest. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. Since Shakespeare's time, no period has produced more brilliant and various theatrical dramas in Great Britain than in the past 100 years. Professor Saccio has selected the major British playwrights of the past century to cover Wilde, Shaw, Coward, Beckett, Osborne, Pinter, Stoppard, Churchill, and Hare. Why this roster of modern British playwrights? As you'll discover while exploring their great works in these eight lectures, some of them celebrate (or satirize) elite manners, some explore the changes in a kingdom that once ruled a quarter of the globe, some assault the sociopolitical establishment, and some probe the Existential anxiety of the modern age."Unlike other media, dramatic art occurs in a certain place in time; in the 'here and now,'" states Professor Saccio. You'll examine the role theater has played in British culture and society over the past 100 years. You'll witness the evolution of the stylistic conventions of the British play, from the genteel drawing-room comedies of the late 19th century to the radical political theater of the late 20th century. Throughout this brief survey of some of the great innovators of the dramatic arts of the modern era, you'll understand how and why modern British drama has changed so dramatically, and you'll realize the importance of the political and social context in which these works were written. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Saccio.

In Fixing Britain, Digby Jones, 'the face of British business', puts the spotlight on critical national and international issues and lays out the essential reform urgently needed for growth of our nation. Knowledgeable, authoritative and independent, Digby highlights how untenable the status quo is in the UK, and sets out how Britain can get back - and stay in - the globalised game. Sending a clear message to government, business leaders, strategists, and the media, Fixing Britain explores the effective linkage of change at all levels, from Westminster to education, the public and private sectors, our social cohesion and our sense of common purpose. Never afraid to say what others are thinking, Digby Jones presents some startling truths and some plain common-sense answers. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lord Digby Jones.

The British and Irish Lions are one of the most famous and feted teams in the world of rugby. Every four years, the Lions - selected from the national sides of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland - head to the southern hemisphere to do battle with New Zealand, Australia or South Africa. 125 Years of the British and Irish Lions covers the entire period of the Lions' existence, from the first recorded rugby tour of Australia and New Zealand in 1888 to the 2013 tour to Australia. In this comprehensive book, authors Clem and Greg Thomas trace the origins of the Lions, track the team's development and investigate the social and political issues that have helped to shape one of the world's most formidable touring forces. They relive every Lions tour and Test match and celebrate the key moments that have made the Lions such a magical part of rugby folklore. 125 Years of the British and Irish Lions includes colourful recollections from and insightful profiles of some of the most celebrated members of Lions teams, highlighting the fulfilment, pride and passion that every British or Irish player feels upon being selected to play as a Lion. The late Clem Thomas was an outstanding Swansea flanker who earned 26 caps for Wales between 1949 and 1959. He was a British and Irish Lion in 1955 on the tour to South Africa. After retiring from rugby, he became a respected journalist and completed work on the first edition of this book prior to his death in 1996. Greg Thomas is Clem Thomas's son. He is a former Swansea and London Welsh centre/wing and student international for Wales. In 2009 he was appointed head of media and communications for the British and Irish Lions tour to South Africa. Now resident in Sydney, he will once again be part of the Lions management team for their 2013 tour to Australia. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Philpott.
