Having comprehensively resolved the concept of Britishness in Paul Sinha's Citizenship Test (you're welcome) comedian and quizzer Paul Sinha returns to Radio 4 with this series that asks why the world is in the state it is, and comes up with some surprising, yet accurate, answers.
From why the most watched event of 2014 was eleven Germans playing an English game against eleven Argentinians in Brazil, to why you are so spoiled for choice when it comes to cuisine in the United Kingdom. Paul delves into some of the lesser recognised annals of history to make the world we live in understandable and slightly inevitable.
In Series 2 Paul turned his attention to some lesser-regarded inventors, some surprisingly popular fiction, the development of transport, and some wars that you may have missed.
There is also puns, let's not kids ourselves.
Paul Sinha's History Revision will change the way you think about the state of the world. Or failing that, it will help you score a few more points in your next pub quiz.
