A good way to revise is to watch some short clips to deepen your understanding of the topics covered. Many of these clips explore ideas we have covered but you need to adapt them so that they link with the Andes and the Sahara. The two Uganda clips provide some kind of background.
Search the clips to see what you can find, are there any useful clips that you think we should add?
Type the clip number into the search facility.

What impact has conflict had on Afghanistan’s development?
Afghanistan’s location is a strategic one, lying between the Middle East, Central Asia and India. Consequently, it has been an area of conflict for centuries as countries have fought over it and tried to conquer it. In 1994, after several years of different factions trying to gain control of the country, the hard-line Islamic Taleban emerged, controlling most of Afghanistan with their version of Sharia law. Afghanistan became a base for Osama Bin Laden and other al-Qaeda members and when, after the attacks of September 11th 2001 the Taleban refused to hand the suspects over, the US launched a bombing campaign against the Taleban as part of their ‘war on terror’. The conflict started on October 7th 2001 and has been going on ever since.
