Big Question 2: How strong was the wartime friendship between Britain, the USA and the USSR 1941-45?

What you have to do

In your history courses you have probably watched many TV programmes on a wide range of subjects. In this assignment you are going to plan your own TV programme and try to 'sell' your ideas to a TV company.

You are producing an analytical programme, so you don't need to tell the story of World War 2, or even the Yalta and Potsdam Conferences. The TV company already has programmes which do this. Your programme is designed to support the TV company's other programmes.

Stage 1: What will you cover?

You have several choices here.

• Wartime cooperation between Britain, the USA and USSR

• How Britain, USA and USSR showed the other in their wartime propaganda

• Examples and evidence of wartime disagreements and suspicions

• How the Big Three worked together at Yalta and Potsdam

• Tensions at Yalta and Potsdam

Your programme could deal with one or more of these issues. Talk to your teacher about this.



Decision




Stage 2: Approach and balance

You have to decide on the angle of your programme. Are you going to say that the friendly pictures at Yalta and Potsdam are:

• Absolutely accurate

A complete lie

• Somewhere in between?

If you choose the balanced approach, will your balance be 50% each side, 70% one side etc?



Decision on Approach and Balance




Stage 3: Create a storyboard

Storyboards help you to show how you want your programme to look and sound.

• We recommend about 8-10 sections for your storyboard.

• We have suggested an opening for your programme. The rest is up to you!

• You could use presentation software like PowerPoint or specialist storyboard software.

• Remember that you could use many different images and sounds in your plans: newsreels, interviews, actors reading out extracts from sources, maps, cartoons, etc.
