The clip can be used to recap or introduce the study of pressure groups. Following from this, students could work in groups to set up their own pressure group, to deal with a school or community based issue which they may find important. They could work in groups to produce a website or podcast which could campaign on the aims of their pressure group and why they believe this issue is important.
