History A-Level Podcast – The Russian Revolution

Dr. George Gilbert has re-created his popular talk for A-Level students as five 10-15 minute podcast episodes, taking you from Russia in the late 19th Century up to 1917. (The last episode is split into two parts.)

George says, “The Russian Revolution is quite arguably the seminal revolutionary event of the entire twentieth century. This short talk will explore the long and short term causes surrounding the revolution, its placement in early twentieth century Russia’s longer-term epoch of conflict and violence, and briefly touch on some of its outcomes.”

Episode 1: Social and Economic Change


Episode 2: Rise of Political Radicalism


Episode 3: 1905


Episode 4: WW1, 1914-1917
