We are looking for an apprentice to help us build our new website on Wix, which will hopefully be complete next year. If you are interested please get in touch with us.
We need help with:
- Sketch pages with a list of each sketch (so each HHTV Sport sketch on that page) and its description
- Series 1-5 episodes, listing each sketch with a description
- Historical eras – a list of each sketch, with a description, for each era.
- Song lyrics copied from this website to the new one.
- Spelling checking. There is no spell-check on Wix, so some spelling/grammar may not be accurate.
We would also like:
- Someone to look out for Series 7 news on the internet.
- Some professional help to make digital posters/media related to Horrible Histories.
- Some professional help to get the message across about us once the site is complete.
- Some professional feedback/comments about the website and how to improve.
If you would like to help with any of that, any work you do would be appreciated.
To become an apprentice please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please Tweet @HHTV_ or comment any questions you have.
Please remember we are a website that brings the latest Horrible Histories news, not the actual TV show itself.
This is all voluntary, none of this paid.
We’ve had a good run here on WordPress, however after more than a year of our blog and website, we’ve decided to make an updated website using ‘Wix’.
Don’t worry though-our blog will continue, and all our data will be transferred to our new site-the only difference is we’ll have more room for pictures and the layout looks a lot cooler, apart from that everything will be exactly the same!
WordPress is a brilliant website for blogging, of which we have made over 115 posts with. Wix, however, is better for layout and presentation.
Below is a sneak peak of the new website, still in progress. With Wix we can use all the space and move things around to how we want them to look.
The new site should be up and running hopefully next month. This site will remain active, however all future news, blogs, content and media will appear on the new website and on our Twitter page (@HHTV_ / twitter.com).
In the meantime send in your suggestions-what would you like to see on the new site that we haven’t included on this site?
More news to follow.
We’ve started working on an educational page for the website, which allows teachers and parents to view a list of historical topics which are then linked to appropriate songs and sketches.
The page should hopefully be live by Summer/August 2016.
We’ve finished updating the ‘Silly sketches’ page, now with some brand new logos of which link to the sketch page when clicked.
We still have a few more logos to add, but now the page is more colourful, organised and up to date and working.
Now we just need to update the sketch pages…
As we approach the new year (2016) we have got some plans and ideas for the site in mind:
- We plan to gather more episode pictures to use.
- We are going to try and finish the sketch pages.
- We are going to try and finish the historical era pages.
- We would like to add a ‘watch’ page for each sketch so you can just click on the clear link and watch the video without having to read descriptions and info.
- We would like to jazz up the homepage and make sure all video links are working.
- We would like to start to add on to the video pages themselves with information, pictures and a quiz question.
- We would like to try to make more posts.
In summary we would like to improve the website over the course of the entire year (as of February we will have completed our first year). Once we start to do this we can hopefully gain more viewers. For those interested, in our first year (from February 2015) we have had a total of over 46, 000 views and our best month was October with 7,746 views. If you know someone who would like this sort of website, HH fans, school children or teachers then please let them know we are here and are improving over the year.
2015 has been a great year so far, and hopefully 2016 will be even better.
Happy New Year all!
Don’t miss out on our Awesome Advent Calendar taking over the Home page soon!
Just to get you into the festive mood-
Watch out for our awesome advent calendar starting in December! A brand new post with either a vile video or petrifying picture along with some foul facts as we count down to Christmas every day!
– Frightful First World War Special: pictures
It’s been a while since we’ve posted some HH news, and quite frankly there isn’t any now the sixth series is over. However, whenever there is a special event we will try to keep up with our Singing/Silly Saturday posts; and as Bonfire night is just around the corner we’ll try to jazz up our home page to celebrate the event with the best Guy Fawkes videos.
Also, the website is still developing, but we plan to finish the historical eras hopefully by the end of this year/start of next. We are also working on video pages to add related videos and information about the sketch. As ever, any inquiries or questions just get in touch and leave a comment!
-The HHTV Team
ViThe website will still be available next week, however there will be a delay to the updating of the ‘Series 6 Episode 11’ page, and the top 10 pictures post from that episode will also be delayed, including any further news. By Sunday 2nd August we will try our best to update the Series 6 news. In the meantime, check out Wikipedia’s Series 6 page and The British Comedy Guide for further episode descriptions and titles, and the CBBC website for a sneak peek of the next song.

P.S. Here’s a sneak peak for Cruel Cromwell’s episode (not definite title).
That’s the official title of the new series, and you catch up with it now on iTunes!
In other news, all but three od the sketch pages are finished (hooray!) so check them out! Also, spread the news about Series 6, and send out links to this website-we’re aren’t getting many views! Don’t forget Rowan Atkinson’s back tomorrow at 5PM.
Two more things: Don’t forget to vote-how did you find the Naughty Napoleon episode? And if you want to see all the polls they’ve been moved under ‘latest new’ at the top.
