Tropical Storms: Bangladesh's Cyclone Aila

Media: DVD
DUR: 33 mins
Product Code: CYCLONE
Price: £45.00

With extraordinary footage shot during and after Bangladesh's most recent cyclone, this resource looks at the causes, impacts and management of tropical storms in an LEDC. It provides clear explanations of the physical causes of cyclones and the social, economic and environmental impacts are told through first hand accounts of those affected. It then provides examples of management strategies to reduce both the short and long term impacts of cyclones through better monitoring, prediction, disaster relief and poverty alleviation schemes.

“Highly engaging and relevant for GCSE and GCE level. Very accessible material with up to date case studies which focus well on the role of NGOs in providing sustainable long term solutions.”

Janet Neil,
Head of Geography, Redland High School

The two new DVDs, Flooding in Bangladesh and Tropical Storms: Cyclone Alia are excellent, relevant and topical. The teaching resources mean teachers do not have to spend time developing their own material. I particularly liked the flooding one because I can visualise how I would use the footage and the teaching materials with different age groups.

I wish there had been packages of this high quality available when I was teaching. Bob Digby is a well-respected geographer with a track record for innovation and so his support material goes down well. The inclusion of word versions of the student activities are much appreciated, as teachers say they are able to edit these to customise the material to make it more suitable for their teaching groups.
