Fascinated by facts? Hynotised by history? Or do you think the past should stay firmly between the pages of your textbook? Love it or hate it, you should check out the wild and wacky TV series Horrible Histories on Discovery Kids - it will give you a whole new perspective. Based on the hugely popular books written by Terry Deary and illustrated by Martin Brown, these 30-minute episodes use a hilarious mix of sketches, songs, cartoons, quizzes and animation to reveal some revolting, bizarre and utterly true facts about the past - all the good bits your teachers leave out of lessons. History has never been so hilarious!

Horrible Histories is showing every Saturday and Sunday at 8.30pm on Discovery Kids (now TV (channel 445) and bbTV (channel 324)).

Discovery Kids is giving away tickets to Young Post readers for the stage show Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain (February 15, 5pm, HKAPA). For a chance to win a pair, tell us which British monarch was in power in the Victorian era. Send your answers, with your name, age, school, phone number and postal address, to yp.competition@scmp.com with “Horrible histories” in the subject line.
