GCSE and A Level History Audio Study Guides
Congratulations and Welcome! You've arrived at our History Podcast Library!
Are the lessons of history ever learned, and does history indeed repeat itself? Throughout the ages, it's accepted that history has by and large been written by the winners, which poses major questions for balanced representation.
History is a very special and important subject
Nothing beats going to a lesson where everyone has prior knowledge of what is going to be taught - it makes for much better discussion!

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.
On 16 May 2002, an old man died in his bed in Hobart. Alec Campbell had lived to 103 years of age. Born in 1899, before Australia had become an independent nation – Alec lived right through the twentieth century. During Alec’s life, Australia changed greatly. He lived through Two World Wars; the Great Depression; the Cold War; the beginning and the end of what was known as the White Australia policy and Australia’s shift from being a loyal outpost of Great Britain – to a modern multicultural nation, increasingly focussed on its position in the Asia-Pacific region. As we’ll see in this podcast series, the Australia in which Alec grew up and went to school, was very different to the Australia he finally left behind when he died in the twenty first century. Welcome to our series for Year 10 students on the Modern World and Australia. We are proud to be able to bring you the combined intellectual might of Professor Keir Reeves, Dr Ben Mountford, Dr Jolanta Nowak, Kat Avery and David McGinniss of the Federation University and the Collaborative Research Centre for Australian History, to help you in your studies.
