Timelines TV - British and American History Videos

Timelines.TV is the website companion to a BAFTA award-winning television series. On Timelines.TV you will find four series of documentary videos arranged chronologically. There are three series about British history; social, political, and imperial. There is one series about the American West in the 19th Century. You can browse for videos using the timeline at the bottom of the homepage or use the drop-down menu at the top of every page. I've only had time to watch videos from the American West series, but if the rest of the videos are as good as those that I've watched, Timelines.TV is a high-quality production.

Applications for Education
In addition to being a resource to supplement your classroom instruction, Timelines.TV provides a model for a student project. You can use a video creation service like Remix America or Animoto to have students create their own history videos. Then use a service like XTimeline to organize and display the videos.
