Georgetown Day School

Social Media Case Study

British Political History Condensed is a funny Monty Pythonesque video that was produced for the Political History students of Georgetown Day School. It tells the story of thousands of years of British History — all the way from 1066 till 2008— in 8 minutes 49 seconds flat. The video was uploaded to YouTube, and shared on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. It has subsequently been shared by a plethora of historians, scholars, professors and comedians, who have posted it their own sites, as well as to satirical comedy sites. To date, the video has garnered over 100,000 views on YouTube alone, as well as a huge amount of Internet publicity for Georgetown Day School and its innovative teaching methods.
