The Amazing People Club takes you on a virtual historical journey into the lives of some of these inspirational contributors to this nation. Famous for her many lovers, Catherine the Great was also a strong leader who inspired loyalty and respect rather than fear and oppression - indeed she did not do things in a traditional manner. Orbit the earth with Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space at the age of 27. Be swept away by the composer of such masterpieces as Swan Lake and The Nutcracker, Tchaikovsky, who led a somewhat troubled life despite achieving immense success.
