The award-winning Horrible Histories is back and it is even more horrid, more gory, more ghastly and more hilarious than ever! Based on the bestselling books for kids -and for adults but they just will not admit it- Horrible Histories takes a rib-tickling, weird and wonderful look at what people used to get up to in centuries gone by and is jam-packed with gory stories, strange facts and weird words. Join Rattus Rattus as he hosts an entertaining investigation into the worlds of the Rotten Romans, Awesome Egyptians, Vicious Vikings, the Terrible Tudors, the Fabulous French and the Angry Aztecs. Series Three sees the return of Mr Death as he presides over some of the most stupid deaths in history. There is a right mess on the kitchen floor in the all new Historical Master Chef, and the historical paramedics make a welcome return to try and save lives with their own largely useless bag of tricks. Plus there are a whole new bunch of memorable sing-a-long-if-you-dare songs as Cleopatra sings in a style Lady Gaga would be proud of, and the Roman Emperors fight to outdo each other on the dance floor. Get ready for the funniest, fastest, nastiest and daftest ride through history you're ever likely to see.
