In what is sure to be a week in which many media outlets publish year-in-review slideshows and videos, the BBC has one that stands out. The BBC’s We Remember…in 2010 takes a look at the notable politicians, athletes, actors, and music stars that passed away in 2010. The audio slideshow is nearly eight minutes long. And as with most BBC audio slideshows, captions are available to accompany the audio.
As with most year-in-review videos and slideshows there isn’t a lot of depth on any one topic. Where year-in-review videos and slideshows are useful is in refreshing students’ memories of the year in news and providing a jumping-off point for further research and discussion of the year’s biggest stories.
