  1. Is there a way to watch all the episodes as a whole and not several links. I am now just coming across this and would like to start at the beginning. Several of the links are also unavailable now so I know I am missing a bunch.

    • Thank you for your comment! Our website has only just begun this year in February with the arrival of the 6th series, and so we are still slowly expanding the website. The only way we can get each video/clip is via YouTube due to copyrighting, and so whatever videos are not on there we cannot display. Hopefully, as more videos are uploaded onto YouTube we can start to add them, however at the moment what we’ve got is all we could find at the moment. Would you prefer it on sketch pages, instead of putting a picture with link to the video, would you like it if we put all the videos from that sketch onto the page? And the same for episodes? Please, let us know, and we are happy to make any adjustments. Hopefully most of the pages on the website will be completed by 2016, with the exception to some pictures from videos.

      Again, thank you for your comment!

  2. I can’t seem to see / view any of the videos on your site. Am looking for the videos on the middle ages in particular. Any ideas?

      Most of the information is just from Wikipedia’s long list of episode details (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Horrible_Histories_episodes), however we’ve got pictures, better descriptions and sorted things out with more detail to organise that information.
