The Worst Jobs in History

Channel Premiere: The Worst Jobs in History: Series 2

The History Channel – Friday 29 June, 9.30pm

Tony Robinson returns to shed more light on how a previously unsung army of workers shaped the world as we now know it. The horrendous jobs that people have undertaken down the centuries have been fundamental to history. The series reveals how events, institutions, emblems and economics have been brought about by legions of men and women trudging around the bottom rungs of the career ladder. Tony gets down and dirty with Leggers, Puddlers, Puggers, Pure Collectors and Gut Girls. He also enters the arcane worlds of Fusee Chain Makers, Underdogs, Whipping Boys and the Saggar Maker’s Bottom Knocker.
