Most Helpful Reviews

60 Second Histories

Carol Stobbs, Head of EBACC: I love the format, the online classrooms where I can set specific videos for classes. The support from Julie and Kevin and the resources give it the extra dimension. They are always happy to help.
Nigel Siddall, Director of Humanities: A brilliant service - both informative and dramatic. An excellent complement to any history teaching
Lyndon McErlaine, Head of History: I find the range of characters to be vast, and I can always find an example for what I am teaching about. My students respond well to Kevin’s style of delivery. It provides a genuine spark.
