Histories Of The Unexpected - Sam Willis & James Daybell

What links zebras to World War Two? The history of the beard to the Crimean War? And what ties the bed to the expansion of the British Empire? BBC4 presenter Sam Willis and historian James Daybell take us on a joyous journey of discovery - from the Tudors to WW2, the Roman Empire to the Victorians - as they bring to the Festival stage their award-winning podcast enjoyed by half-a-million people worldwide. “History as you’ve never seen it before” (Dan Snow).
