An artist's impression of some history happening.

Digital TV service, The History Channel, has been rubbished by a top historian over its 'crap content.'

Prof Ken Lucid has hit out at the channel following a day's viewing and checking the TV schedules.

"I don't get much time off," Prof Lucid said. "But there I was on Thursday, nothing to do, time owing... 'I know,' I said to myself, 'I'll have a day at home and look at the history on TV."

But the Herodotus Chair of History at Hounslow University was disappointed with what he found.

"Ice Road Truckers, Deep Sea Detectives, The Tallest Towers, Alaska State Troopers... I could go on.

"I checked, but I was looking at The History Channel, sure enough. Talk about crap content! This is the same channel that showed me a German documentary on the siege of Vienna a couple of years ago. What the f*** happened?"

Prof Lucid added that in future, his days off - "They're like hen's teeth," he said - would be spent in the legendary Chiswick media pub, The Tabard Inn.
