Irreverent Python-esque BBC Children’s TV series. Teaches history by focusing on the funny, gross and grisly (aka memorable) aspects of history. Featuring the Rotten Romans, Groovy Greeks, the Terrible Tudors and Vile Victorians there are songs, sketches and TV format parodies. Children love it but there’s lots of poo, vomit and references to death so if you aren’t comfortable with that beware.
Available in the UK on BBC iPlayer and in the US on Amazon Prime and Hulu. Promo clips and songs at YouTube. Please comment below with info on how to watch in your country if not already listed here.
