Who runs this place? is a student led investigation into political power in Britain.

Over the last year, a group of 16-18 year olds gained unprecedented access to boardrooms and corridors of power in Britain. They came face to face with the top people in business, finance, politics and the media and asked them ‘who runs this place?

They visited the boardrooms of

• Royal Bank of Scotland
• the BBC
• Vodafone
• BP
• Better Capital
• the British Bankers Association
• the CBI
• the NHS
• the Daily Mail

Who Runs This Place - An Investigation
Investigators in the city

They questioned senior journalists:
Jon Snow, Alan Yentob, Stephanie Flanders and Greg Dyke, as well as politicians Jon Cruddas MP, Andrew Tyrie MP, campaigners and whistleblowers.

Where does power lie? In this DVD, the hidden anatomy of Britain is revealed. These interviews are hard-hitting and insightful and expose the gap between these young people’s lives and the world of the rich and the powerful.

Everything You Want To Know About Going To University

DVD £39.99 ex Vat.

☞ view clip ☞

A Question and Answer interactive DVD designed specifically for students who are the first in family to go to University.

DVD Resource:
DVD content: 20 questions 3-4 minutes each
2 student tours of universities 10 minutes each

Briefing & Advice: 20 printable pages downloadable from:
Suitability: Years 10, 11 & 12

Going To UniversityFilmed in small group sessions, students from years 10,11 and 12 ask the questions. They are from a wide range of backgrounds and are the first in their family planning to go to University. Their questions are an A - Z of their concerns and aspirations; from “where will I live?” to “will I get a better job?"

The answers come from graduate students fro m exactly the same backgrounds and are direct, clear and honest. Each question is formatted for instant click and view and, with the linked student briefing sheets, allows students to easily focus on the issues, so they can consider their options and make appropriate decisions.

The Questions Include:

  • Why Go?
  • How much will it cost? Loans, grants and bursaries.
  • What is a seminar?
  • Where will I live?
  • The first day - How bad is it?
  • How hard is degree work?
  • Working to a deadline - will I be chased?
  • Keeping up – who can I turn to for help?
  • My parents are worried - what can I tell them?

The answers are candid, funny, insightful and honest.

Two Student tours of Universities.
These two ten minute films follow
year 10 and 11 students visiting two Universities: Sussex, a purpose-built campus, and Greenwich, a multi site university.

The students visit lecture halls, libraries, IT centres and a hall of residence. The students see for themselves exactly what life at university involves and their questions cover the academic demands, finance and lifestyle.

These films are ideal preparation for students visiting universities themselves, so they know what to ask 
and can get the best from their visit.

Review by George Ferris
Aimhigher Consultant Waltham Forest East London:

This is a thorough and truly comprehensive guide which prepares young people for the difficult choice of deciding both whether to go to university and where and how to apply.

The material is fresh and direct, involving current undergrads and school and college students in wide ranging question and answer sessions which really do ‘touch all the bases’.

The DVD will prepare groups and individuals to get the most out of visits to Universities, and if this is not feasible this is the next best thing to being there, including tours of both city and campus environments.

Information ranges from the realities of shared space student life to the practicalities of making ends meet on a student loan: from the angst of making new friends to the possibilities of trying new hobbies.

The wealth of material is well organised and accessible, and combined with comprehensive on-line notes offering suggestions and activities, which could form the basis of either a school or college themed day  or a course of two to six sessions in a wide range of careers, G&T and life-skills contexts.

This DVD is an essential tool in helping young people make sense of the choices facing them in the sometime unfamiliar area of higher education.
