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. Welcome to our series on Germany 1919-1945: The Development of Dictatorship for Edexcel IGCSE. In it we examine 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.

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. In this series we follow the Edexcel specification from first to last including the study of the Historical Environment: The British Sector of the Western Front 1914-1918 Injuries, treatments and the trenches.

Even though the USA had entered WW1 and had subsequently involved itself in the affairs of post war Europe, American influence across the world really started to be felt for the first time during our period of study. The 'roaring twenties' conjure up images of wealth, parties, music, gangsters, cars and an emerging Hollywood. The cultural influence of the US was starting to spread. They say that if America sneezes the rest of the world catches a cold. No kidding! The 1930's Wall Street crash and subsequent depression reverberated around the world and still does. Our series has been written by Briton, Dr David Perkins, and American historian, Jakub Gaweda.

Welcome to our series for the Edexcel specification on Elizabethan England. The series is broken down into 4 areas of four podcasts, each area focussed on one of the 4 key topics to be studied; Accession, Religion, Challenges and Society. Elizabeth is viewed as one of our greatest monarchs. She committed herself to her country, even ruling out marriage in favour of her subjects. But was this really a golden age? How did the country react to Elizabeth? Was she even wanted? This was a period of religious turmoil and would be a thorny issue throughout her reign. There were other issues too - revolts and rebellion at home and threats from abroad, especially the mighty Spanish. It was also a period when the English started to expand their horizons both at home and abroad. And what was life like at home under Elizabeth? There was plenty of change and, as is usual, winners and losers. Our series brings together Oxford historian and Tudor specialist, Dr Glyn Redworth, and Chris Eades, a History teacher at one of England's oldest schools, Harrow, which was established during our period in 1572 by Royal Charter of Elizabeth herself.
