I am delighted to announce that History Bombs' Online History Resources have won the Learning category at the 2017 BAFTA Children's Awards!

When we set out upon this journey to make accessible and exciting history content in 2014, we knew History Bombs had the potential to be a special project.

Three years on and our YouTube channel has amassed millions of views, thousands of history teachers and homeschoolers are using our resources in the classroom and we have created original work for the BBC.

To receive BAFTA recognition is far beyond our expectations and a fantastic testament to the hard work, creativity and bravery of our passionate team.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank several key members of our team, including Claire O'Brien (Producer), Ellie Rogers (Director), Dylan Townley (Writer) and Neil Thompson (History Consultant).

Additionally I would like to say a big thank you to our investors as well as everyone who has supported History Bombs.

From all of us at History Bombs, thank you for watching and stay tuned!

Thank you,
