    This site is curated by Channel 4 News and features footage shot by Syrian filmmaker Wa’ad al Kateab during the relentless aerial bombardment of Eastern Aleppo. Aid workers and foreign journalists are unable to gain access to this part of the besieged city and it is left to local people, often citizen journalists, to bear witness to what is happening. The site features a timeline, beginning in July 2012, and offers a chronology of the conflict so far, interspersed with film showing the daily lives of Aleppo’s citizens. The stories documenting the suffering of the city’s children are particularly harrowing.

    Courses, Streaming/Download

    This site is the YouTube channel of an organisation which offers a number of services (in the form of courses, films, books etc.) relating to how ideas from the humanities - literature, philosophy, psychology and the visual arts - can help ‘exercise, stimulate and expand your mind’. Although the focus is on a general audience, and the ethos is towards ‘self help’ rather than academic study, the videos are well-made and could be used in a classroom setting. Featuring simple but effective animations and clearly spoken commentaries, the films (which are usually around 6 - 7 minutes long) are arranged by subject matter, and cover a broad range of subjects from the humanities and social sciences, including the History of Ideas, Sociology, Political Theory, Literature and Art and Architecture. The series on philosophy introduces the basic concepts and ideas of thinkers from Plato, Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas to Schopenhauer, Hegel, Wittgenstein and Foucault.
