Publisher's Summary

This series for GCSE History follows the Edexcel specification and will furnish you with all the information required for your coursework and exam. It's a fascinating subject, and our series has been designed not only to provide you with the necessary information but also to bring the subject to life with music and sound effects.
When did you last visit the doctor or dentist? Imagine the last illness or accident you had (hopefully not too serious a one!). Did you see someone quickly? Did they give you a diagnosis and treatment? Did they make you better?
Now imagine having no access to a doctor or dentist. Imagine no effective drugs or treatments. Imagine operations or tooth extractions with no anaesthetic. Imagine having no understanding of why you are Ill or if you'll get better. You'll have some insight into the lives of those who lived in this country a thousand, a hundred or even 50 years ago.
In this series we follow the Edexcel specification from first to last, including the study of the historical environment: the British sector of the Western Front, 1914-1918; injuries; treatments; and the trenches.

Interesting listen.

What did you like most about Medicine in Britain 1250-Present?

At first, the style and leaning towards TV shows of the day. Now, just the educational aspects and the topic itself.

Who was your favorite character and why?

DDon't have one.

What about Robbie Curran and Zoe Lambrakis ’s performance did you like?

I thought that the target audience would appreciate the nods to TV culture with lots of the topics being discussed in the style of current shows.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

As someone who isn't in the target audience of this book, the style and novelty value has worn thin, but I still find this book interesting because of the topic itself.
