Historians Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook are interrogating the past, and attempting to de-tangle the present.

 

They question the nature of Greatness, why the West no longer has civil wars and whether Richard Nixon was more like Caligula or Claudius.

They’re distilling the entirety of human history, or, as much as they can fit into about fifty minutes.
