A very quick (and necessarily incomplete) overview over 5000+ years of history of the Netherlands, intended for an international audience. It has a slightly geographical bias due to the audience the film was originally made for.

If you think some things are missing or presented unbalanced: please post a film that discusses that part of Dutch history in greater detail. I left out a lot of important things, because the goal was a quick and dirty introduction. Further information is to be found elsewhere on the internet.

Music:
Intro: Wilhelmus (Dutch National Anthem)
Hunebedden: Volk van Laaf - Efteling (Bakery theme)
Romans: Hyrule Field Theme - Koji Kondo (Legend of Zelda - Twilight Princess)
Golden Age: Theme from Soldier of Orange (Soldaat van Oranje) - Rogier van Otterloo
French Rule/19th Century: Ne me quitte pas - Jacques Brel
WW2: Theme from Schindler's List - Itzhak Perlman
20th Century: -Zing, Vecht, Huil, Bid, Lach, Werk en Bewonder - Ramses Shaffy

Made originally for the exchange Youth & Landscape 2008 in Ellivuori Finland, thanks to Lanschapsbeheer Nederland (Geschiedenis van Nederland)
