In their show they highlight how even the most unexpected of subjects has a history and those histories connect in unexpected ways.

James said: "Our flexible approach allows you to see the historical significance in everything, and extends to all manner of subjects, topics, themes, objects and emotions, and it helps you see how it all links together.

"It is these connections between different aspects of our past that breathe new life into our understanding of both the past and the present."
