British Academy Children’s Award nomination for Horrible Histories
An off-the-wall series that explores the less glorious aspects of the past, Horrible Histories made a super-smooth transition from page to screen. The programme regularly topped the children’s TV viewing figures and got rave reviews from newspapers, websites and – most importantly – children.
The award ceremony will take place on Sunday 29 November 2009 at the Hilton Hotel in London.
The first series finished earlier this year, but there are lots of fun behind-the-scenes clips to whet your appetite at the BBC’s Horrible Histories microsite.
