A stimulating curriculum resource pack called The Music Industry brings both generations together in penetrating the gossip and glamour surroundidng stars such as Madonna (above). It comprises a 12-week work scheme, adaptable for GCSE and above, particularly for media studies, which ranges from the history of hip hop and theantecedents of indie bands to image creation and distribution.
