Video Clips & Free Downloads

To give an idea of the video clip files within the Video History Today packages, here are some examples.


Each sample video index has been uploaded to our YouTube Channel but can be viewed below.  Please note that due to the nature of YouTube, the quality of the YouTube version is lower then in the original downloadable files.  In addition, the video packages can be downloaded at full resolution via the ‘Download File Here’ links.


(Each downloadable file has been Zipped which means you will need software to open it.  Windows Vista does this automatically.  Video History Today uses Cam UnZip on Windows XP.  The files have not been designed for MAC computers).


What is a Video Index?


Each package of video clips includes at least one Video Index.  These are designed to allow users to scan the video clips in one go with sound but at a lower resolution or to view a muted, speeded up version for quick scanning.

What is the Video History Today style?


Every location featured in the Video History Today products have been recorded from different angles and with a general mixture of wide angle views, pans (side to side) and close-ups.  The general idea is to provide users with the ability to create documentary-style video essays (the next time you watch a documentary note how wide shots, pans and close ups are used).


Almost all the video clips have been shot hand-held.  This was primarily a practical decision linked to cost/time factors.  Transporting, setting up, adjusting etc of a video camera & tripod would have added massively to the cost of producing these products, (in initial research, the cost of professionally shot 10 second video clips was found to be more then the entire cost of a single Video History Today package.  In other words, not affordable).  


The key aims of the Video History Today products are to get students using an affordable, simple product, introduce them to real historical locations and hopefully improve their understanding of these key events.  And ultimately, have fun doing it.
