Dan Snow: On This Day in History on Friday 23rd November 2018
Britain’s favourite historian Dan Snow tells the story of an important event that happened on each day of the year. From the signing of the Armistice treaty on 11 November 1918 to Rosa Parks refusing to give up her bus seat on 1 December 1955, from the Ides of March to D-Day and the day Napoleon was attacked by hundreds of wild rabbits, Dan Snow offers a vivid, personal history of the world, showing how our past is full of fascinating turning points. Historian Dan Snow is a BAFTA winning broadcaster and television presenter. His hugely popular History Hit podcast is downloaded one million times a month and he has a regular slot on BBC One’s The One Show.
