    On to Bannermans for A Complete History of the Roman Empire (abridged title) with Ed O'Meara. Always a bit difficult when the audience indicates that they're possible history buffs. There is that slight look of terror like that on the face of a supply teacher suspecting that his pupils know more than he does. He seemed to be surprised that he's been getting full houses - it certainly was the busiest (free)show I've been to. Not that surprised myself as history - especially ancient - especially Roman - has never been sexier (not much of statement, I know!) So with that he might have to up the ante a bit - is there anyone on this planet now that doesn't know Caligula translates as 'little boots'? Still if you have a scant knowledge of Roman history and want a quick crammer with plenty of non-offensive, groan-worthy jokes this would be right up your via. A bit in the 'Horrible Histories' vein so also perfect for 'that' kind of older child.
