CNN developed a series called Millenium in 1999 which reviewed the last thousand years of world history.   A website went along with the series, and it seems to be a pretty good multi-media presentation, though it’s more appropriate for upper-intermediate to advanced English Language Learners.  Teachers could also find some good materials on the site.

I’ve place the link on the relatively new World History page on my site.  It’s the last link under the category Sites That Cover Many Periods of World History.  I’ve titled it “The Last Thousand Years.”
