BBC iPlayer isn’t just for catching up on last night’s Eastenders or rewatching Gavin & Stacey for the 17th time, you can also find a lot of educational material in its depths. You can watch the latest episodes of QI to learn more quirky facts about the world or explore the hundreds of episodes of Science and Nature documentaries. There’s also great comedy and entertainment shows for when you have finished your work for the day and need to relax.
David Attenborough alone can take you through Climate Change for your Science lesson research, the different ecosystems around the world for your Geography research or even the early years of making nature documentaries for Media lesson research.
Some more examples of programmes that can aid your research are below:
Criminology – Jack the Ripper
Engineering – The Limit: Trickiest Tunnel
Music – Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool
Dance – The Royal Ballet: Mayerling
Don’t forget though that some episodes are only available for a limited time and can be removed from iPlayer at any time.
