Based on the best-selling books for kids (and for adults, but they just won't admit it), Horrible Histories is an energetic, surprising and unconventional take on history's most gruesome, unpleasant yet funniest moments. From the woeful World Wars, the miserable Middle Ages and the savage Stone Age to cut-throat Celts, groovy Greeks, rotten Romans, vile Vikings and awful Egyptians, history has never been so naughty. These are the stories from history that your mischievous uncle told you about; the gory, smelly bits that your teacher wouldn't approve of. Get ready for the funniest, fastest, nastiest and daftest ride through history you're ever likely to see.

I have learnt more throught this TV series than i ever did when i took history in lower school. Also, the actor Mat Baynton is a wonderful actor (along with all the others of course!!) and tells history like everyone should know it. I am 15, nearly 16 and i love this program and yes i may be a child at heart but anyone wondering whether to buy, or watch these episodes, i strongly suggest you go for it!! :) Much love to the horrible histories cast and crew (L)(L) xxxxxxx
Quite probably the funniest thing on TV!
Horrible Histories is HILLARIOUS!!!! Before I started watching, I couldn't have told you anything about, for example, Charles II - now I can rap about him, ha ha! And don't be put off by the fact that it's a 'kids' programme - I'm 17, my little brother got me into it and now I never miss an episode! The songs are the best part but it's all so funny! This series is as good as ever, it never fails to make me laugh! And, you learn something too. Perfect :) x
great series loved every minute of it.
