A performing podcast from Zinc Media Group

Tony Robinson is best-known for playing turnip-brained Baldrick who always had 'a cunning plan’ in the iconic TV show Blackadder. He’s presented countless documentaries throughout his 50-year career, including 20-years on Channel 4's Time Team, inspired by his passion for history and for digging deep into the past to understand more about the present. That’s his thing!

In his cunningly curated history podcast, Tony is delving into the weird and wonderful stories that grab him and make him want to know more about the world around us. He’s asking: Why was Stonehenge built? What did the past smell like, was it horrible? Why were pies invented? Why do our dogs love us so much? When did tattoos stop being taboo? What do bones tell us about past humanity? Amongst other intriguing questions…


Along the way, Tony is joined by experts and special guests, including Miriam Margolyes, Stephen Fry, Raksha Dave, John Lloyd, Alice Roberts, Grace Neutral and David Mitchell who help provide some answers.

So join Tony Robinson as he hosts his cunningly curated history podcast. New episodes drop Thursdays.
