Wars of the Roses – The Last Plantagenet
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Explore how the Wars of the Roses still has relevance today. Although more Channel 4 than BBC Four, Richard knows his history and can trot out the facts, but his kids have other ideas. Exploiting his technological weaknesses, they cunningly insert slides designed to thwart his show. Embracing their desire to make history funny, Richard explores the concept of whether a few well-timed gags will cement or hinder learning. Expect history delivered with a twist, possibly the most educational show in Edinburgh this year.
