|The core of the program is its REGIONAL
CHRONOLOGIES— separate timelines for each continent.
These timelines take you to individual entries on the major events. From each event
you can instantly access other continental timelines, helping to understand the relations
between events in different parts of the world. Every event entry is linked to
where you can learn about the country where that event took place.
Many event entries include links to the PEOPLE section, so you can find out more about the individuals who were central to that event. Finally, most event entries include BIBLIOGRAPHICAL REFERENCES, so you can further investigate the subject.
Whether it is the signing of the infamous Munich Agreement, or the Indian- Pakistan War, this program helps visualize the many events of this century in new and unique ways. Learn about the events, the causes, and the people involved.
Nearly 100 of the chronicled events include VIDEO CLIPS, enabling you to see history as it occurred. A special screen allows you to see all of the video clips in the program from one place.
An overall WORLD CHRONOLOGY integrates the events that took place on different continents. Country entries include maps, information on country history, statistics, economy, as well as links to major events in the 20th century.
You can access the BIOGRAPHY section, with the stories of 200 of the most important people of the century, either from the ATLAS section or from each of the TIMELINES.
Special sections on WORLD WAR I and WORLD WAR II bring to the screen bloodiest years of the century.
