We are joined by two wonderful guests from the town of Gander in remote Newfoundland, Canada, where locals showed amazing kindness to people from all over the world, following the terrible events of 9/11. We only briefly mention the planes that crashed into the twin towers: we focus on the heart-warming humanity that followed.
Our special guest tells us all about why King George VI was called ‘Bertie’ and why his daughter should never have become Queen!
Listen and learn from a 16-year-old master historian – and hear some incredible interviews!
Dad and Me investigate ‘internment’ in America, the UK, Australia, Hong Kong and beyond.
Dad & Me Love History presents a New Year Special Episode, where we go back through the archives and play you highlights from our original recordings of Dad (& Me) jokes, from Ancient Romans to African Moors to the invention of cars! This includes some previously unpublished material.
Following the origins of sugar takes us around the world, through 10,000 years of sweet but sticky history. Sugar was like oil or gold for a while – so in-demand that people in power got greedy and the powerless suffered as slavery expanded.
Why poppies? What’s the Last Post? [HINT: it’s nothing to do with sending mail before Christmas!] Why keep remembering a battle your side loses? What does ANZAC mean?
We investigate the Cold War: when did it happen? What happened during the Cold War? Why did it happen? And how? Between the USA and the USSR, things were very cold, whereas over in Korea and Vietnam things got hot-hot-hot!
