The last formal online traces of the most comprehensive collection of TV programmes (more than 3,500) on teaching and learning have just disappeared with the axing of the Teachers TV website by the Coalition Government. But a group of UK teachers has succeeded in downloading all 4,000 or so videos and materials to share with other educators online.
One of the organisers of the rescue mission, Leon Cych, of Learn 4 Life, says, "In four days a group of determined teachers have literally 'saved' Teachers TV. Imagine a whole workforce as determined and selfless as them. I think our current generation of children are in good hands."
