Horrible Histories, a factual series aimed at children, is to be remade and given a prime-time slot on BBC One in the Corporation’s latest attempt to bring the past to an adult audience.
Telling history through irreverent sketches and enlivened with gory details, the show will be hosted by Stephen Fry who progamme-makers have recruited to help it appeal to grown-up viewers.
