Victorian Dragon's Den, Historical Wife Swap and Ready Steady Feast are among the spoof shows in the second series. The comedy songs were back by popular demand too and included the toe-tapping number Spartan School Musical and a Charles II song (with a nod to Eminem). Those making cameo performances included David Baddiel and Alexei Sayle.
The third series covered every era from the Stone Age to the First World War, with new additions including terrible tales from the Angry Aztecs, the Fabulous French and the Nasty Knights. The series also featured a devilishly difficult ditty which features every Monarch from William the Conqueror to Queen Elizabeth II; plus an Adam Ant style homage to Dick Turpin, and songs about suffragettes and bad emperors.
