As with every ZigZag publication for media studies I was vastly impressed with the depth and integrity of the science fiction teaching guide. The resource really helps students break open the huge topic and focus their understanding using the key concepts of the specification – a well tried and proven method of delivering the specification effectively. – J Stenner, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

It could literally be picked up and followed lesson by lesson as plans are really well explained, links to appropriate clips on YouTube, images and posters included. Media resourcing can be a very onerous task when it comes to resourcing, everything needed is within the scheme with clear direction for staff. – L Bird, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
