Summary
COI synopsis: The more we learn about each other, and the earlier we start to learn, the better. So, in modern education, young people in increasing numbers are studying the rest of the world, concerning themselves for nations and cultures which may lie far away from home. London Line visited a school in Britain where many nationalities are represented and encouraged to take the opportunity of learning from each other; in particular, we show how the movements of a troupe of skilled African dancers are integrated into the school play - The Tempest by William Shakespeare.
