Class curriculum

From the Potsdam Conference to the fall of the Berlin Wall, we look at the key events of the Cold War in our iconic 'one take' style.

We look at the key differences between capitalism and communism and explore the propaganda and government campaigns that enforced fear and hostility.

We visit East and West Berlin in each decade to understand what life was like at the epicentre of the Cold War.

We examine why proxy wars were so prevalent during the Cold War era.

The aftermath of the Cold War continues to have significant effects on the world. In this video we consider the countries still dealing with the consequences.
