Videos about the Middle East, c.1919-c.1995

The following videos have been selected from YouTube. I have tried to find materials that are not heavily influenced by one side or the other but which offer some reasonably ‘objective’ account. However, I cannot guarantee that this will always be the case so – as always – you are encouraged to doubt, to question and to reach your own conclusions about what you see here.
