Frank Skinner loves history, but just doesn't know much of it, so he's created The Rest Is History, a comedy discussion show, in order to find out more about it.

Along with his historian in residence Dr. Kate Williams, each episode sees Frank joined by a selection of celebrity guests, who help him navigate his way through the annals of time, picking out and chewing over the funniest, oddest, and most interesting moments in history.
