Yea the History channel was in trouble a few years ago. That is when the new Manager took over and decided to fill it with junk.
Good insight. Now whenever someone pipes up at the channel and asks: But is this history? The answer quickly comes: "Remember how we suffered when we did those boring history shows? No! We gotta sell sell sell baby. If we can't sell a show to the masses then its not worth producing. Bam!"

Hi Tweefo,

Yeah doing documentaries about events without footage means they have to produce the images themselves. That means money. So thats why the only event in Human history is WWII Smiley

Mrs Kent seems to switch her subscription on and off at will. It seems to be loosely correlated with Gordon Ramsay's Masterchef series. Arme ek. Roll Eyes

Let me guess: Mrs Kent can cook brilliantly, but she lets fly with the most hideous language if you set a foot wrong in the kitchen.

But hoping to get some good Docies for him to watch when he is bigger.


Make sure you start him off with a good dose of Cosmos  Smiley

There's some good stuff on BBC Knowledge occasionally. Bit of a cut above the usual Yank bilge. Disclaimer: some of my favourite people are American, but jeeeez.

I must admit that all the silly internet memes featuring that Ancient Aliens whackjob make me ROFL, though.
