BBC children's show but don't let that fool you. It s aimed at adults too. http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/shows/horrible-histories My kids got me into it. Of course I had heard of the Terry Deary books but the tv show is like a modern day version of Monty Python for kids but that is just my own opinion and nowhere near their perfection. Having said that they were a bit before my time. I thought Life of Brian was a bit silly but I was a kid when I was shown it. They show history up to WW2. I love their show especially their songs.
