Comprised of nine sub-categories –  including Lenin & the Russian Revolution, Nuclear War & Peace Movements, The Second World War & the Rise of Fascism, and Revolution, War, Conflict in China & Korea – this module turns a lens on political upheaval across Europe, Asia and Central America, digitising rare footage which relates to the Vietnam War, the Cuban Revolution, nuclear weapons and growing demands for peace.

The films in the collection have been conserved and digitised from the original 16mm and 35mm reels. They are fully transcribed and searchable.
