Subjects Tutors About Us

GCSE and A Level History Audio Study Guides

There is something very special and important about History. It is a subject which is both dear to our hearts and very relevant in today's world. It is also a subject which lends itself to the wonderful medium of audio. In fact it was our History teacher who was our inspiration. Every class he gave was a joy to attend. It was in his image that we created Audiopi and our mission is also to make every tutorial we create a joy to listen to and learn from.

We have been very fortunate to have the support and hard work of an amazing group of history academics and teachers. Our content is entirely original and our combination of writers ensures that the relevant specifications are fully addressed and that our listeners benefit from the very latest academic thinking. We do not regurgitate text books in audio! Each series comprises between 15-30 tutorials with an average length of 10 minutes. This makes what we do easy to access and not too overwhelming for our listeners!

Our series are designed to support the work of teachers in the classroom and give students very easy access to independent study. Many of our teachers have their students listen to our tutorials in preparation for class and we have structured each series to be reflective of lesson plans.

It is our job to ensure that students get a thorough insight into everything their course requires. It is also to give them the passion to explore for themselves.

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 OCR GCSE specification on Elizabethan England. 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 Dr Jenni Hyde, Associate Vice President of the Historical Association
