Adam Curtis - Bitter Lake 2015  (History teacher's edit)

With apologies to Adam Curtis and encouragement to all to watch the full version, this edit is based on the simple narrative structure of the original film and designed to be accessible to history teachers/students. A history of Afghanistan since WWII, via Arab Israeli conflict, Cold War, Oil crisis and de-regulated banking, 1979 Soviet invasion, Islamic fundamentalism, 9/11, 2001 US/UK invasion, 2008 banking crisis and ISIS. Basically one man's account of how we got to where we are now.
