Historians and hosts of the hugely popular podcast The Rest is History, Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook have invited a few of their friends along to tell you EVERYTHING, from the Big Bang right up to 2022.

Contributing their expertise will be the world’s leading stegosaur specialist Dr Susie Maidment; world-renowned novelist Sebastian Faulks CBE; historian and broadcaster Michael Wood OBE; director of the Friends of Friendless Churches Dr Rachel Morley; historian, TV presenter & podcaster supreme Dan Snow MBE; historian and chief curator of the Historic Royal Palaces Tracy Borman; hosts of the We Have Ways of Making You podcast, historian James Holland and Al Murray, aka the Pub Landlord; and geneticist Dr Adam Rutherford, host with Dr Hannah Fry of the Curious Cases of Fry and Rutherford podcast.

This stellar line-up will take you on a whistle-stop tour through time and space, from tyrannosaurs to the Tudors, from the Sphinx to the Suffragettes, from Babylon to the Beatles, from the pre-Cambrian to the present day.
