Horrible Histories

My kids have discovered the brilliant and hilarious, "horrible histories", a children's TV show packed full of the weird and wonderful from history; told in often quite alarming ways! From cruel Victorian factory bosses sacking children who lost hands in their machines, to a madly ego-centric (and gloriously camp) Alexander the Great, naming countless cities after himself, to Kings George I-IV forming a boy-band and singing their story; education is rarely as funny as this! The official website, containing full episodes is here; in the meantime enjoy the following clip:

I have "Horrible Histories" on CD. My favourites are "The Vicious Vikings" and "The Rotten Romans". They're hilarious!
