Michael Grade traces the raucous history of the music hall in a revelatory journey that takes him from venues such as Wilton's Music Hall in London to Glasgow's once-famous Britannia. Talking to enthusiasts and performers, Lord Grade discovers the origins of this uniquely British form of entertainment and revisits some of the great acts and impresarios, from Charles Morton and George Leybourne to Bessie Bellwood and Marie Lloyd.
It is estimated that at least 70 per cent of university students cheated at some point during their high school years. Many continue to do it (and few get caught) once they move on to post-secondary education. And research shows those who cheat in school go on to cheat in life. Those cheaters are everywhere, because ours is a culture where honesty has been de-valued and a win-at-any-costs strategy is encouraged. It's time to take a hard look at this phenomenon. In a new one-hour documentary called FAKING THE GRADE, students, administrators, parents and teachers speak about their experiences around what's known as "Academic Integrity", while experts provide insight into why students cheat. Those experts say it's no surprise that young people cheat. They see it going on everywhere in the world of sports and entertainment, and especially business.
