History Bites: Episode 25 a Woman for All Seasons

Loading...
A skit comedy show that explores the premise, "What if television had been around for the past 5,000 years?" Each episode channel surfs through a particular day in history and the result is a history lesson hidden inside a clever spoof of TV. In this episode, Hildegarde Von Bingen is one of the bright lights of the Dark Ages. She even sees bright lights. Barbara Walters interviews with multi-talented church woman about her life and her miraculous visions. As well, Hildegarde talks about her music writing, her church writing, the church, and her surprisingly modern view of sex. Elsewhere on the medieval TV dial we'll catch Falconry for sports fans, witch burning tips for your kids, plus a chat line for women who want big chests to attract men with... big chests full of dowries.

History Bites: Episode 51 Between Me and My Calvin

Loading...
A skit comedy show that explores the premise, "What if television had been around for the past 5,000 years?" Each episode channel surfs through a particular day in history and the result is a history lesson hidden inside a clever spoof of TV. In this episode, Protestantism proves that it can be just as intolerant, narrow-minded, and politically motivated as the Catholic Church it was trying to replace. Judge Judy listens to both sides of a court case involving John Calvin and a French scholar who wants to be part of the new Protestant movement. Elsewhere on the Protestant dial there's teenage angst on "Dawson's Creek" and on "Law and Ordinances", a Catholic is charged with harbouring saints.
