Based on the bestselling series of books for kids (and for adults, but they just won't admit it), Horrible Histories is an anarchic, surprising and unconventional take on history's most gruesome and funny moments.
Foul facts, rotten rulers, beastly battles and evil inventions feature in horribly hilarious sketches, songs, cartoons and quizzes - all linked by the show's host, a talking rat!
From Woeful World Wars, miserable Middle Ages and Savage Stone Age to cut-throat Celts, groovy Greeks, rotten Romans, vicious Vikings and awful Egyptians, history has never been so horrible!
Irreverent in tone and approach, these are the stories from history that your teacher wouldn't tell you about; the gory, smelly bits that they wouldn't approve of. Get ready for the funniest, fastest, nastiest and daftest ride through history you're very likely to see.
Fantastic! This is a great way for older children to learn about history. As the name says, it is history with an emphasis on the horrible bits. The humourous and horrific presentation keep my boys (aged 9 to 14 years) coming back for more. If you have enjoyed the books in this series, then you will definitely enjoy the DVD - great value for money!
As the previous writer said, it's fantastic. All three of my kids watch
it (ages 9-15, boys and girls). They sing along to the songs, laugh at all
the stories. One great addition is the Songs section, where you can
select just the songs...including my personal favourite, the Four Georges
("I was the sad one, I was the mad one, I was the fat one..."). Definately
worth buying :-)
