Horrible Histories

This multi-BAFTA-winning TV show boasts an astonishing British comedic cast including Jim Howick, Lawry Lewin, Alice Lowe, Simon Farnaby, Gemma Whelan, Jalaal Hartley, Tom Stourton and Jessica Ransom. With endless side-splitting jibes at contemporary pop culture, the original, innovative and smart comedy was produced by London-based studio Lion Television.





Based on a series of books by British author Terry Deary, this beloved, long-running series informs children about notable historical events while being packed full of dramatised battles, bloodshed and dark humour. Each episode dutifully and irreverently explore a different era and/or civilisation throughout history.
