Paul looks at the forgotten women of history. From warriors to inventors to civil rights activists, Paul unearths some stories, that for reasons of sexism and patriarchy, we never got told about at school. You're welcome, ladies.

Paul Sinha returns for a second series of the show that uncovers the fascinating stories that we've forgotten in our onward march of progress. In the last series we learned how Alexander Graham Bell did NOT invent the telephone, and that the World Cup final of 2014 could only have happened because of the 1415 invasion of Morocco.

Paul looks at the some of the heroic pioneers in the field in exploration, and recounts how they met implausibly stupid deaths.

0203Sex And Sexuality2016060920190602 (BBC7)

Paul Sinha looks at the role lust has played in driving history.

Stories range from the loving marriage that prevented Dr Zhivago winning an Oscar, to the most depraved Roman Emperor of them all (it's not who you think), to the British monarch whose gay affairs changed the world. Phwoar, eh?

0204Planes, Trains And Automobiles2016061620190609 (BBC7)

4/4: Planes, Trains & Automobiles.
This week, Paul asks "How did we get here?", quite literally, getting the studio audience to tell him how they got to the BBC Radio Theatre, and then regaling them with stories from the history of transport. From the area of London that became a Russian train station, to the man who revolutionised both the motor industry and the music charts, to the names of airports around the world, this programme about the world of planes, trains and automobiles will provide fascinating facts and surprising stories (unless you listen on a weekend, when a bus replacement service is in operation).
