SPRING is here at Waterloo Road with the DVD release Waterloo Road, Series Four: Spring Term. Based in a troubled Rochdale comprehensive school, this hard-hitting series takes a no-holds-barred look at the trials of teaching in a turbulent school and the tough path many pupils have to take to get there.

Originally commissioned for the BBC in 2006, Waterloo Road's portrayal of the intertwining lives of staff and students has gone from strength to strength, pulling in excess of 6 million viewers per episode. This gripping, compelling and acclaimed series returns to BBC One for a fifth series in September 2009, continuing to run in 2010.

Stars include Neil Morrissey (Men Behaving Badly, Up ‘n' Under), Eva Pope (Coronation Street, Cold Feet), Denise Welch (Auf Wiedersehen, Pet, Coronation Street), and Philip Martin Brown (Juliet Bravo, Foyle's War).

A new term with new tantrums, trials and temptations begins under the leadership of Head Teacher Rachel Mason (Pope) and her Deputy Eddie Lawson (Morrisey). Their working relationship soon appears to have evolved into something more, along with the question as to whether they reveal it or keep it close to home. And could there be something more between teacher Tom Clarkson and the notorious Rose Kelly? Tom's partner Davina seems to think so.

Teacher Kim Campbell has returned from Rwanda and she's brought a new baby with her which seems to be attracting more than the usual attention. Steph Haydock, heart in the right place, is there to help - but is that really a good idea?

The classrooms are bursting with misguided energy as Janeece takes the influence of a glamour model a big bit too seriously; Chlo has to face any doubts she has about impending motherhood; and Earl Kelly has to risk everything if he's to prove his commitment to Flick Mellor after all. Trying to keep them in check, Teacher Matt Wilding has formed a school choir. Will they make music - or mayhem? Another term at Waterloo Road, where so much can go wrong, and so much can go right.

Presented as a three-disc box set Waterloo Road - Series Four, Spring Term builds to a climax that may see the school literally cease to exist.
