10 Things You Don't Know About

10 Things You Don't Know About

This fast-paced half-hour series explores the history you thought you knew in a whole new way by revealing ten amazing things you didn't know about a historical person or event. Each episode focuses on one subject and is filled with the kind of fascinating information that makes for water cooler buzz and changes your understanding of how history happened. Plus, each one of the ten things becomes a springboard into other revelations: Ben Franklin, for example, is well-known for having been a ladies man. What you didn't know is that he was also a member of secret sex clubs. Which led to Ben fathering an illegitimate son, William. AND, it was William, not Ben, who flew the kite in the famous experiment when Ben sent him out to do it. Hosted by historian David Eisenbach, and shot on location at sites connected to each episode's subject, Ten Things... is both an active and interactive journey through amazing history you didn't know, but will never forget.
