Espresso's 20th Century Archive

This new history resource for key stage 2 from Espresso brings to life the history of the last century using video clips to illustrate events, people and change.

With more than 60 high-quality video clips, the archive is sub-divided by decade and includes sections on fashion, famous people, transport and major events, with topics such as man walking on the moon (Sixties) and the Blitz (Forties).

Each clip is long enough without labouring the point and there is a good balance between archive footage and interviews with people who lived through those times.

20th Century Archive comes with activity sheets and teachers' notes and there is no reason why history lessons should be anything less than exciting.
