See the world through their eyes: inner-city L.A. kids performing Shakespeare plays with Ian McClellan and Michael York in The Hobart Shakespeareans; youngsters leaving the crime-ridden streets of Baltimore to attend a unique school in Kenya in The Boys of Baraka; and emotionally damaged children getting a second chance and gentle guidance in an unusual British school in Hold Me Tight, Let Me Go.
