About the Show

What makes one historian enchanted by the Middle Ages and another obsessed with Stalingrad? Winners of New South Wales Premier’s History Awards Alan Atkinson, Carolyn Holbrook and Babette Smith reveal to Caroline Butler-Bowdon how and why they fell in love with their subjects. These are the untold tales behind Australia’s best history writing – the late-night discoveries that made the hours of research worth it and the moments where history truly came to life.

Presented by the History Council of New South Wales.
