  1. Hello,
    I was looking to show a clip in my World History class of the Spartan/Athenian parent teacher conference. It seems to have been removed. Can you tell me how or if it is still available?
    Thanks,
    Jeff Dyke

    • The only way to view HH videos are via YouTube, the CBBC website or BBC iPlayer. We get our videos from YouTube to put on the website, so if it has been removed we are afraid we cannot help with that.

      Thanks for your comment!

  2. hi I’m doing an assignment on Themistocles and ive been looking everywhere too see if there is any information about him in any of the groovy Greek segments. it would be much appropriated if u could help me out.
    thanx

    • I’m afraid if there is no information on the page then we can’t help you out as HH have not made a sketch about the topic, sorry!
