Antarctic follow up for S2 who have looked at this briefly. Another star feature trom Tony Cassidy.

Geography - Why is it relevant to me?

Nice movie here from Tony Cassidy. I’ll forgive the spelling mistake of “effect” rather than “affect” because it is so good!

Higher/ Int 2 Industry

Some extracts here from the BBC site. Make sure you look at this please to supplement and remind you of work we do in class.
Industrial Change in WalesEbbw Vale has changed dramatically. Where now lies a barren empty valley once stood the largest steelworks in Europe. See the BBC site here.

The story of the South Wales valleys is a picture of a world that no longer exists. Once a working mining industry, the region now experiences unemployment and poverty. The one colliery still open is Big Pit. It's a museum and tourist attraction.

One hundred and fifty years ago the landscape of South Wales was transformed by the coal industry. From the air you can see the industrial legacy.

There is also a nice summary, especially revision of S grade work and introducing call centres for Intermediate geography. Link here.
