Historians in the News

BUDDING historian Cai Green, from Grantham, is through to the finals of English Heritage's national competition to find the Young History Presenter of the Future.
The 10-year-old's video entry about William the Conqueror won him one of 10 places at a presenting boot camp with presenter Dan Snow.

Cai will travel to Wellington Arch, in London, on Monday to meet Mr Snow and receive tips on how to be a good television presenter and help to create his own professional show reel.

Then judges will review each of the finalists' work and select a winner who will present a one-off history programme on the English Heritage TV channel EHTV.

Cai said: "I can't wait to get to Wellington Arch to show the judges what I can do. I love history and it would be a dream come true to present a film on EHTV.

"I chose to make my video about William the Conqueror who was very brave and strong and did loads of amazing things, but also had a nasty side."
