Suzanne Nice show. My bf who does not like to read loves it, and I love the fact that he catches up on a bit of history through it :-)

Tammy (g8rbucsgirl) | 22 comments Thanks Claire! My kids love watching this show. Can only see it through youtube.


message 10: by Louisa (new)

Louisa | 7 comments Horrible Histories is fantastic! My son not only watches it on TV but also on the internet. It really gets kids, especially boys, into history. It was going to happen with him anyway, as he's been taken to museums and historical places since he was tiny, but he's constantly asking questions after each episode.

Colleen (nightoleander) | 1106 comments I watched both Terrible Tudors and they are so funny!!!


message 12: by Alex (new)

Alex | 43 comments Hilarious, thanks for sharing! I could only find the two that Claire linked on youtube. The rest that popped up were people making their own using images from the TV show The Tudors.

Gregory House (greghouse) | 122 comments Ok, but have you seen Brian Blessed in his Henry 8.0 do a Youtube search they are priceless.
in the meantimeyou may like to check out this.

To all my friends on Goodreads just a quick note to let you know I put up another article on that fascinating royal family of ours the Tudors, as well I’ve put in a few notes on how my protagonist Red Ned Bedwell fits in the Tudor hierarchy. Also I’m letting everyone know that the prologue from my soon to be released book The Liberties of London will be on the Red Ned blog tomorrow.
In the meantime good luck and have a great week end

Daisy | 8 comments I LOVE Horrible Histories! One of my favorites to watch actually!

I even make my younger siblings watch some episodes with me as they should learn a bit about historical events as well :)

happy (happyone) | 106 comments THey really are a delight :)


message 17: by Kayla (new)

Kayla De Leon (kayladeleon) I especially love the song they did for Henry VIII's wives!

Divorced, Beheaded, Died
Divorced, Beheaded, Survived!

That was hilarious!


message 18: by Daisy (new)

Daisy | 8 comments Hahaha(: yes, I couldn't get the song outta my head!


message 19: by Katharine (new)

Katharine Edgar | 20 comments Oh, I love this so much (and so do my kids). And they've learnt a ridiculous amount from it.

My youngest is particularly keen on the 'Divorced, beheaded, died' song to the extent of demanding (aged 3) to enter a fancy dress competition as Henry VIII. I made him a lovely costume and he perfected the Henry VIII way of standing, but sadly he refused to wear the beard because it was tickly so he didn't win.

They're also passionate Ricardians as a result of the Richard III 'I'm a nice guy' song and I have a photo of them all hugging the statue of Richard III at Middleham Castle.

The RAF pilots song makes me cry. It's so well done - funny and respectful at the same time.

Kimber (kimberlibri) | 66 comments You should also check out HISTORYTEACHERS on youtube...
They take various historical moments and set them to modern day music. For instance The Black Plague is set to HOllaBack Girl.
