HISTORY offers substance and depth; it entertains, using startling visualisation to tell incredible true stories more thrilling than fiction.

HISTORY’s unique view on our past and present, champions stories of defining human endeavour. We uncover the ‘how’ and ‘why’ shaped by fascinating and often surprising facts and circumstances.

Our premium drama, including titles such as Vikings and Black Sails, offer the chance to take a look at the past through dramatic retellings of famous stories including some infamous characters from history.

Elsewhere, Hunting Hitler and Curse of Oak Island offer gripping investigations into long-standing mysteries, while Alone sees men and women compete for half a million dollars in a competition for who can draw on age-old bushcraft techniques and survive in the wild for the longest, and Forged in Fire pits expert blacksmiths against each other in a race to recreate some of history’s infamous edged blades.

Forged in Britain looked to bring the story of tool working closer to home, meeting some of the UK’s top metal-working talent.

Also coming to the channel are Robert Redford’s The West and World War Two Treasure Hunters, both shedding new light on already famous periods of history.

HISTORY is bursting with extraordinary, entertaining and ground-breaking stories and characters; inspired by yesterday, lived out today, shaping tomorrow. This is our history.
