Time for Geography

This excellent website has a number of videos explaining key processes and geomorphic features of Britain. It is produced by academics at a wide range of universities, and includes “knowledge boosters” on a range of subjects, including Glaciation, Waterfalls, Coasts and much more.

There are a number of videos about glaciation, with “knowledge booster” and “grade booster” videos.

Films about Climate Change and Glaciers

There are a number of excellent climate change documentaries and films publicly available for little investment.

  • Thin Ice talks about climate change from the scientists’ perspectives. The website has many resources, including extra clips and information. The film can be rented and watched online for NZ$5 and downloaded for NZ$10.
  • Chasing Ice uses stunning repeat photography to characterise glacial recession over several years. The film is available to download from iTunes.
