The Supersizers

It's no holds barred with writer and restaurant critic, Giles Coren and performer and broadcaster, Sue Perkins. The dynamic duo take on the past one week at a time in BBC's  The Supersizers Eat... and The Supersizers Go...The two eat, live, and breathe the time periods which they hilariously discuss.

Narrated by Roy Marsden, The Supersizers series is just as fun as it is informative. 

Dressed in era-appropriate attire, Coren and Perkins immerse themselves in the Victorian, WWII, Ancient Rome, among many other time periods. Each week, they are examined by doctors to determine the effects the different lifestyles have on their bodies. They speak with subject matter experts and share lively, engaging information on the eras.

Travel with Coren and Perkins as they harness the past. Watch the first episode "Wartime" below  to learn about WWII Britain.
