Frank Skinner and guests ponder history's funniest moments. With historian Dr Kate Williams, Victoria Coren Mitchell and Andy Zaltzman. From December 2014. Episode 2 of 7.

A new, six-part comedy discussion show hosted by Frank Skinner.

Frank loves history, but just doesn't know much of it, so he's devised The Rest Is History to find out more about it.

Along with his historian in residence, Dr Kate Williams, each episode sees Frank joined by a selection of celebrity guests, who will help him navigate his way through the annals of time, picking out and chewing over the funniest, oddest, and most interesting moments in history.

Frank's guests in this edition of the programme are Victoria Coren Mitchell and Andy Zaltzman.
