Who we are

As a part of ERA’s commitment to helping licence holders make the best use of material available to them, we have decided to start highlighting our ‘top pick’ each week. We’re hoping to reveal multiple educational uses for a single episode, series, or film with enough time to act as a ‘heads up’ for teachers to be able to record or access the material.

Channel5’s new documentary MPs: Behind Closed Doors (Monday 28th November, 9pm) offers a behind the scenes look at the surgeries of three high profile MPs as they deal with their constituents’ issues. In a particularly divisive year, the topics – and methods of process – covered by this programme will be of interest to provide an “insider’s look” at the British political system for any Politics or Citizenship class. More information about the programme can be found here.

You can also access curated clips through our new learning platform .To use the platform, you just need to email your request to era@era.org.uk and we will set-up a login so that you can access the site freely.
