Our Website

Our BAFTA award-winning website includes fascinating online resources for schools and families, and is used by a wide range of schools and families, primarily in the UK, USA and Australia.

We are constantly working on improving our website with new content and features. Our goal is to create an essential resource for educators and students.

Social Media

Our YouTube channel has over 175,000 subscribers and 27 million views.

We have published a selection of our iconic ‘One Take’ videos on our YouTube channel, where they have found a large audience, and have inspired children around the world to create their own performances based upon our videos.

We offer a complete end-to-end solution, from research and scripting through to post-production and social media optimisation.

Independent Spirit

History Bombs is at heart a small, independent educational publisher. We work hard to ensure our content is well researched and accurate and we carefully consider how we present historical narratives.

We are increasingly focused on illuminating diverse historical perspectives and under-represented communities and this will continue to be a key focus for us going forward.

If you have any questions or feedback, or if you would like to discuss a new project with us, we would be delighted to hear from you.
