On This Day in History

Dan Snow

Sunday 13th October 10:20 - 11:20 | Northwood House

In On This Day in History Dan Snow, ‘The History Guy’, brings to life a key event that happened on each day of the year. From the most important British battle you’ve never heard of (20 May 685) to the first meeting of John Lennon and Paul McCartney (6 July 1957) and from the Great Beer Flood of 1815 to the day Jeanne de Clisson became a pirate and singlehandedly declared war on the King of France (2 August 1343), a history full unlikely heroes and fascinating turning points.

Snow is the perfect guide to take you on a whistle-stop tour through the most interesting and important moments of the last 3000 years. On This Day in History is full of surprises, insights and great stories. From the very unusual reason behind Mr Kellogg’s invention of cornflakes to the last failed foreign invasion of Britain in 1798 there is no such thing as a day where nothing happened. And day by day, these stories build into a vivid and very human history of the world.
