Our mission is simple. It is to make history come alive, to inform and provoke, and to encourage listeners to dig deeper and read more widely for themselves. As Mark Twain said:
‘History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes’.
History is our hinterland, the past that influences our present and future. From Crossbows to Crosshairs, from Gunpowder to Gun-Running, we aim to cover a wide range of subjects. We hope that these Podcasts both illuminate and entertain and that you enjoy them as much as we do making them.

How history should be told
Concise, involved and with style. A terrific series on particularly interesting topics. Impartial and extremely interesting. Each one a delight.
Episode 31 - Duelling
I’m not exactly an impartial reviewer as I was a contributor to the episode but I loved it. Jamie and Tom are terrific - like two old mates having a late-night whisky together. Somehow, their voices complement each other very well.
