They also have a vast range of documentaries, some of which are extremely useful to watch to aid your study of GCSE history. It is not compulsory work to watch these but if you have some spare time and access to the internet, then these documentaries will be of use to you.

Elizabethan England (already studied this unit, You can watch these to help you revise)

Conflict & Tension, 1918-39 (this is the unit you are studying at home, this documentary will give you context for the start of the unit)

America: Opportunity and equality: 1920-73 (You will be studying this unit in year 11 but these documentaries are a good way to flip your learning and learn about the topic before you study it)
