The Adventure of English: the evolution of the English language

"The Adventure of English is a British television series (ITV) on the history of the English presented by Melvyn Bragg as well as a companion book, also written by Bragg. The series ran in 2003.

The series and the book are cast as an adventure story, or the biography of English as if it were a living being, covering the history of the language from its modest beginnings around 500 AD as a minor Germanic dialect to its rise as a truly established global language.

In the television series, Bragg explains the origins and spelling of many words based on the times in which they were introduced into the growing language that would eventually become modern English."

Generation 1992 Creative Competition

"1992 – 20 years ago: all countries belonging to the European Union decided to create a single market. This meant removing the obstacles blocking the free movement of goods, people, services and capital among them.

20 years on, we can travel across Europe without having to show our passports, work and live in another country without any difficulty, and find the best deals across Europe when shopping online. But we all agree that more work needs to be done in order to have a fully functioning European single market.

If you are 20 years old, we want to hear from you: your experiences, stories, complaints and proposals to make Europe a better place to live and work."

(Generation 1992)

SmartGate: New Zealand & Australia passport control self-processing

"SmartGate gives some travellers the option to self–process through passport control. It uses the data in the e–Passport and face recognition technology to perform the customs and immigration checks that are usually conducted by a Customs officer.

An e–Passport has a microchip embedded in a hard plastic page and an international e–Passport symbol on the front cover. The microchip contains the same personal information that is on the photo page of the e–Passport, including an electronic copy of your photograph."

(Aotearoa New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs)
