History teachers…Yes teachers. Then why these kidnappers. By the way, this is a rather impractical way to carry a reluctant captive. Today, you are being giving a treat. A few videos with energetic rythm and for once lyrics which make historical sense.

History teachers. Enjoy; watch and listen.

Real teachers. Devoting their free time at making History attracting, young, funny and smart.

Such luminaries video clips must be remembered. Go and visit their website, their motto says it all: History for music lovers. No cheat. And History rhymes with a decidely modern tempo.
