Synopsis:
Collection of three special episodes from the award-winning CBBC history show.

Sensational Shakespeare
Tom Stourton stars as the Bard, as we find out about his humble beginnings, his glove-making father and his early life as an actor. Packed with laughs, facts and quizzes, the show ends with a song featuring every one of his plays.
Staggering Storytellers
Who was the best literary detective? What was the first ever story? Why was Dickens treated like a pop star in America? In its own distinctive and irreverently accurate style, Staggering Storytellers takes a look at some of literature's greatest works and history's wackiest writers.
The Grisly Great Fire of London
In true 'Horrible Histories' fashion, this special episode explores the disaster and the events that surrounded it. We see how London's Mayor preferred to stay in bed during the fire because he'd been partying the night before, and how Samuel Pepys rushed to bury his parmesan cheese for safety.
