Thnaks to this show, I can proudly name all the British Kings and Queen there ever were, know my hieroglyphic alphabet, the names of Henry VIII's wives and what their fate was and more importantly, I keep on learning historical facts in a very funny way. Really, if my teachers taught us history that way, we would have remembered a lot more!

Fantastically written and acted comedic show, with super sketches parodying everything from Masterchef to Lady Gaga! It teaches the more horrible aspects of different historical eras with chld friendly gore and glee, being both factual and entertaining without being forced with either. Each episode neatly links different facts, figures and tales from history from a range of eras using sketches, quizes, parodies and drama. I have certianly learn a lot from watching 5 seasons!

A number of excellent British comedians write and perform in the show, and many others make cameo apperances, bringing a wealth of talent to what essential is a children's fact show. I love all the running jokes and sketches, including "Stupid Deaths" "Bob Hale's Weather Report" and of course all the amazing musical numbers performed in each episode, some of these I can still sing all the words to! A perfectly balanced show - I have yet to find anyone who doesn't enjoy it!
