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!
