New video series aims to boost knowledge of key military conflicts


22 Mar, 2021

The military experts at BFBS, the Armed Forces charity and media organisation, have launched a series of short animated clips to help young people learn about key military conflicts in history …

Developed with educationalists to support GCSE-level students with their syllabus, six poignant conflicts feature in the Explained in 60 Seconds series, which – as its name suggests – explains them in 60-second animated clips. 

The series features fictional BFBS archivist, Professor L, who is challenged – against the clock – to explain conflicts from around the world. Professor L outlines the build-up to each conflict before embarking on her timed challenge. She reveals detailed information about the battles, casualties and the different sides involved. She also adds some interesting facts.

With many students, and their parents, concerned that they might be slipping behind in their learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the military experts at BFBS were keen to offer their support.

The clips will be released every few weeks via the BFBS Creative YouTube channel. Click here to watch the first episode and look out for others coming up in due course.

The following conflicts are due to be featured in the series:

  • Op Granby
  • Korean War
  • Op Chariot
  • Battle of Britain
  • Op Palliser
  • Op Masterdom.
