History Bonanza

They say history is always written by the winners. The History Bonanza is Radio One's flagship education and history programme - an encyclopedic compendium to all your history needs - brought to you by two people who have never won anything.

Nominated for Best Show, Best Late Night, Best Song/Dance Number and Mummy's Choice by you, the listener in the 2K18 Radio One Awards AND flagged by the Broadcasting Standards Authority as 'Most likely to impair/stunt your child's development' -  The History Bonanza is YOUR aural, bite sized, bottom shelf, alternative YET complete history show - weekly on Radio One 91FM.
