In 2018 I took history students to Berlin on a residential trip for the first time after they completed this preparatory task based on selected video clips.

Zoom in for details of individual sites and multimedia resources. The trip was run as a joint Humanities project: the Geographers also had a range of specialist experiences lined up which can be explored on Matt Podbury’s GeographyPods website.
