He explains how Portugal's invasion of Morocco in 1415 led directly to the 2014 World Cup; how the 1909 launch of an Austro-Hungarian submarine prevented Dr Zhivago from winning an Oscar; and tells the story of the black woman who refused to give up a seat on an Alabama bus and ended up changing the law - no, it wasn't Rosa Parks.

Good, but not great 4*
The description says ‘fascinating and hilarious’ and Paul Sinha’s is often reminding listeners that he is a comedian. To most of us he’s that guy from ITV’s ‘The Chase’. Okay I admit it is fascinating, but I wouldn’t call him a natural comedian, just a brainy guy. These three series are good, but not great. Yes I would listen to more series, but saying it’s ‘hilarious’ is just an empty promise and unduly raises expectations of the listener.
Okay reading this back sounds overly harsh, I don’t mean to be as I did enjoy it. :)
