Tony Robinson has always been fascinated by history. 'How do you know who you are, if you don’t know where you came from?’ he says. He talks about his life and work, Blackadder, and how a subject that most people can’t even spell became a twenty-year smash-hit TV series.
Sir Tony Robinson is Britain’s foremost face of popular history, the creator of a worldwide comedy icon, and an award winning writer of children’s books and television. He received a knighthood in the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2013.

He presented twenty seasons of Channel 4's archaeology series Time Team and played Baldrick in Blackadder. He wrote the BBC's Maid Marian and Her Merry Men in which he played the Sheriff of Nottingham, made two series of The Worst Jobs In History, three series of Walking Through History, an acclaimed documentary about the elderly entitled Me and My Mum, and TV documentaries on a host of diverse subjects. He has written 30 children’s books, and has won major awards as a children’s television writer. In 2008 he was presented with the ‘Outstanding Contribution by an Individual’ award by the Museums and Heritage Association. He has been an ambassador for the Alzheimer’s Society since 2008.
