Taking you on a whistle-stop tour through the most interesting and important moments of the last 3000 years, On This Day in History is full of surprises, insights - and great stories. From the very unusual reason behind Mr Kellogg’s invention of cornflakes to the last failed foreign invasion of Britain in 1798, there is no such thing as a day where nothing happened. And day by day, these stories build into a vivid and very human history of the world.

In On This Day in History Dan Snow ‘The History Guy’ presenter of the hugely successful History Hit Podcast and popular TV broadcaster - brings to life a key event that happened on each day of the year From the Most important British battle you’ve never heard of (20 May 685) to the first meeting of John Lennon and Paul McCartney (6 July 1957) and from the Great Beer Flood of 1815 to the day Jeanne de Clisson became a pirate and singlehandedly declared war on the King of France (2 August 1343), history is full of unlikely heroes and fascinating turning points. And Dan Snow is the perfect guide.
