Lucky – Professor Green
It was never easy for Professor Green. Born into a tough Hackney estate and raised by his grandmother, the rapper was always learning the hard way – whether at school, on the streets of east London or during impromptu freestyling shows at friends’ house parties. Indeed life and music have always been intertwined for the young rapper, but it wasn’t until he was 18 that the two were brought into focus by the suicide of his father – and his emotions, ever since, have been reflected in the raw and often passionate line of his inspirational lyrics.

Lucky is accompanied by a unique digital app, which takes you closer to Professor Green and his story: with exclusive digital content for readers to enjoy, this is a rare insight into one of the most exciting and controversial musicians working in music today.

Duchesses – Living in 21st Century Britain – Jane Dismore
The title of ‘duchess’ has long been part of Britain’s heritage. In 2011, it was brought up to date with the marriage of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, when the Queen conferred a number of titles on her grandson, among them Duke of Cambridge. Catherine joined that select group of the highest ranking duchesses, well-known royals whose husbands are dukes as members of the Royal Family.
But another group of women sit just one notch down from royalty, at the top of the aristocratic tree with their dukes. These non-royal duchesses enjoy titles that were bestowed by monarchs for centuries but they are a dying breed: it is unlikely that any more non-royal dukedoms will be created. Here, for the first time, ten of Britain’s non-royal duchesses speak candidly about their role and their lives in the 21st century, an era when privilege is an unpopular concept. Each duchess also selects her favourite ancestor in the role, providing a colourful gallery from the 17th to the 20th century. The parallel biographies provide a thought-provoking comparison for what does it mean to be a duchess in the 21st century? The results are often surprising and always fascinating. The title of ‘duchess’ has long been part of Britain’s heritage.

Having discovered karting at the age of 14 during a family holiday, Prost progressed through motorsport’s junior ranks, winning the French and European Formula Three championships, before joining the McLaren Formula One team in 1980 at the age of 24. In his six seasons with McLaren, Alain Prost won 30 races and three driving titles and in 1985 he became the first French World Champion. In 1986 he became the first back-to-back champion since Jack Brabham 26 years earlier. In 1987, his 28th Grand Prix victory beat Jackie Stewart’s 14-year-old record.
However, in 1988 his brilliant new team mate Ayrton Senna won eight races and the driving title. Thus began the sensational rivalry that conspired to push two of the sport’s greatest drivers to unprecedented heights of success and controversy, and the most bitter feud in Formula One history.

Turning my back on the premier league – lee price
Turning My Back on the Premier League is the story of one fan’s journey from the riches of the world’s most popular football division, to the forgotten underbelly of the English football league. In the summer of 2013, devoted Manchester United fan Lee Price had a minor epiphany; in the warm afterglow of United’s 13th Premier League crown, he decided that enough was enough: from the increasing ticket prices and outright disregard of the typical fan, through to the rising wages and superficiality of the players he once called his heroes, Price could see England’s top division had sold its soul and it was time to do something about it.
Relocating to the suburbs of east London, newspaper journalist Price began to follow his local team – League Two’s Dagenham & Redbridge – and from the moment he set foot in Victoria Road, began to rediscover the true worth of a devout football fan. From the first game against Brentford on a wet summer’s day, to discussing the future of the club with its long-standing chairman, Turning My Back on the Premier League is a month-by-month account of great goals, bad pies and short-lived heroes, and how one fan rediscovered his love for the beautiful game.
