GCSE History: Medicine Through Time



01-Medieval Medicine_07.mp4.00_01_13_23.Still003

10 x 3-4’’ films for BBC Learning on GCSE History, Medicine Through Time.

Using cut-outs and motion graphics, this BBC learning series takes students back in time, bringing to life the artefacts that tell our medical history.

The archival primary and secondary sources seamlessly root you in the iconography at the time. Laden with this rich visual language, these films weave you through the murky meanders of the Medieval times, through the centuries, the gruesome horrors and bizarre practices that punctuated medical progress. Doing it all with a healthy dollop of humour. Just what the doctor ordered.

Executive Producer: Andy Glynne
