Next Episode of Horrible Histories is
Sketches, cartoons and quizzes liberally splattered with blood and gore, based on the books published by Scholastic.
A look at the most ruthless rulers of all time. Henry VIII is so demanding he has a brick wall built at his bedroom door every night, those vicious Vikings find that sorry seems to be the hardest word, hold your nose in Versailles, because Louis XIV hasn't got any loos, and rock out with the Warlords from Hell.
On its 100th anniversary, Horrible Histories takes a look at the Russian Revolution. Tsar Nicholas II gives tips for survival in Russia's extreme climate, and we reveal that Lenin's European Communism lecture tour took in a trip to London Zoo. Lenin also provides beauty advice on how to look good even after death! Meanwhile, Dave TDS finds out just how hard it is to invade Russia, and we listen to Uncle Joe Stalin's Nursery Rhymes and find out that, at one point, he also decided that the key to world domination might, in fact, lie in poo.
A look at the hideous history of health, from the invention of toilet paper to the healthy origins of the cornflake. Along the way we discover that the Mayans believe that drinking wee could cure all ills, that the Tudors had to teach themselves how to swim again (everyone had forgotten), Victorians had a taste in beauty products that was literally shocking, and we take an in-depth look at Louis XIV's bottom problems.
A tribute to Florence Nightingale, The Lady with the Lamp 'just don't let Florence hear you calling her that!' The programme charts how Florence revolutionised medicine and the treatment of the sick during the Crimean War, but also how she also unwittingly sparked the public's desire for trinkets and tat featuring her image. Elsewhere, there's the bizarre practice of Victorian War Tourism (tea, cake and carnage), a look at some Embarrassing Victorian Bodies, and a visit to Mary Seacole's British Hotel.
Looks like something went completely wrong!
