Cold War in Asia 1945 - 1993
Welcome to our series on the Cold War in Asia. Most people are familiar with the Cold War in Europe, but it was in Asia that the Cold War was at it's hottest. For many the Vietnam war defines the Cold War in Asia but there was a lot more to it than that. Our series examines all the key areas required by your study and sheds light on a conflict that arguably led to more deaths than both the first and second world wars combined. Professor Kevin Ruane, a renowned historian of the period, and head of humanities, Richard Macfarlane are your guides. Each main podcast is supported by one of Kevin's 'Key Topics' which will give you a rare insight into the key events.

Schools and students are loving Audiopi
Audiopi has been very useful and I am singing your praises. Our students achieved 93% grades 4-9 at literature - and the podcasts really helped our pupils to go into the exams feeling confident about the texts.Also, the podcasts are very engaging and particularly useful for helping pupils who struggle with reading chunks of text, such as those with dyslexia

I like the way I can listen to a debate on the way home from school; I don’t have to be in a classroom or at a desk!
