The significance of what occurred in Germany during our period of study needs no exaggeration. They say history repeats itself but we must hope that this period provides lessons which the world does not forget. Our OCR GCSE series on Germany 1919-1945 examines all the main themes: The establishment of the Weimar Republic, the problems faced by the Weimar Republic from 1919-1923, its recovery from those problems and finally, the Third Reich. This podcast introduces this period of history. To access the whole Germany 1919-1945 series please visit Audiopi.
When did you last visit the doctor or dentist? Imagine the last illness or accident you had (hopefully not too serious a one!). Did you see someone quickly? Did they give you a diagnosis and treatment? Did they make you better? Now, imagine having no access to a doctor or dentist. Imagine no effective drugs or treatments. Imagine operations or tooth extractions with no anaesthetic. Imagine having no understanding of why you are ill or if you'll get better. You'll have some insight into the lives of those who lived in this country a 1000, a hundred or even fifty years ago. To access the whole Medicine Through Time series please visit Audiopi.
The Early Tudors A Level History podcast series takes you through the OCR specification step by step. The series is produced by Nick Fellows, a lead examiner for OCR who has written many textbooks on The Tudors, Katie Fellows, who is currently studying for her DPhil in History at St Peter's College, Oxford, and Oxford historian, Dr Glyn Redworth, who is a specialist in early modern British & European history. In addition to the main series content Glyn also considers key words or concepts which will give our listeners a neat perspective on each area of study and help them to grasp issues clearly, simply and originally. As Glyn says: "What I like about Audiopi is that it is student-facing: it doesn't just want to help them master the syllabus, it wants to edge them that little bit further."
