73. HISTORY: THE EXCITING BITS

Generously sponsored by

Actor and comedian John Sessions has always had a passion for history and the great stories from our past. So too has journalist and broadcaster Peter Snow, so much so that he infected his son Dan with a similar passion at an early age. Here John and Peter discuss with relish some of their favourites episodes, adventures, heroes and heroines from history.

For many, our history panel show is the highlight of the Festival. With Charlie Higson once more in the chair and John Sessions and Dan Snow also returning, this will be an hour of irreverent history humour as the teams pit their wits against each other in a series of all-new rounds and challenges.
