Horrible Histories Season 7 Air Dates

S07E01 - William Shakespeare Air Date: 19 April 2016 15:30 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

Tom Stourton stars as the Bard, as we find out about his humble beginnings, his glove-making father and his early life as an actor. How did he climb to become a royal favourite? And what was it like to be in the audience of one of his plays, where fruit was thrown at the stage, it was illegal for women to act, and there were no toilets?

Packed with laughs, facts and quizzes, the show ends with a song featuring every one of his plays. The episode has a special guest appearance from Miles Jupp.

S07E02 - Staggering Storytellers Air Date: 11 July 2016 16:00 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

As part of the BBC's #Lovetoread campaign, the award-winning Horrible Histories returns to CBBC with a one-off special about Staggering Storytellers.

In its own distinctive and irreverently accurate style, the episode takes a look at some of literature's greatest works and history's wackiest writers, from Stone Age times, right up present day. We learn how a party at Lord Byron's house led to the writing of the Gothic masterpiece Frankenstein, and how Charles Dickens was the Harry Styles of his day. We meet The Bronte Sisters trying to get a book deal, and Roald Dahl enters the Great British Bake Off with a worm cake.

Spanning 3,000 years of recorded history, we take a look at the funny and ridiculous ways some of our finest writers cured their writing block - did you know Tennyson used to pretend to go the loo as a party trick? Or that DH Lawrence would climb mulberry trees in the nude to stimulate his imagination? And there's a celebration of brilliant female writers, with Malorie Blackman, Enid Blyton, Jacqueline Wilson and Beatrix Potter (pictured) getting on down, Little Mix stylie.

Plus, of course, our trusty host Rattus to guide the way

S07E03 - Horrible Histories Specials: The Grizzly Great Fire of London Air Date: 05 September 2016 16:00 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

For the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London, Horrible Histories returns for a one-off special looking at the disaster and the events that surrounded it.

On the night of 2 September, a spark from a baker's oven in Pudding Lane ignited a fire which roared through the tightly packed streets of London, tearing up the timber-framed houses and destroying up to a third of the city.

In true Horrible Histories fashion, this special episode explores London and Britain before the fire, full of plague and party in the raucous Restoration atmosphere personified by King Charles II. We see how London's Mayor preferred to stay in bed during the fire because been partying the night before, and how Samuel Pepys rushed to bury his parmesan cheese for safety.

We meet Christopher Wren, astronomer and self-styled architect. We see how his new St Paul's, that rose phoenix like from the ashes, was a physical manifestation of the ideas of the age. We take a look at Isaac Newton and the Royal Society with their wonderfully crazy and gruesome experiments!

And, of course, our trusty sewer dweller Rattus to guide the way! Guest starring Robert Webb.
