BBC History Magazine is Britain’s biggest selling history title with a highly engaged and loyal audience. It brings history to life with informative, lively and entertaining features written by the world’s leading historians and journalists. Whether it is the grand history of politics and institutions or the fascinating stories of our private lives through the ages, BBC History Magazine sheds new light on the past and helps us makes more sense of today’s world.
BBC History Magazine is published by Immediate Media Company London Limited under licence from BBC Worldwide who help fund new BBC programmes.
We may be a history magazine, but we’re never stuck in the past. Whether it’s the latest research on major historical topics, or explanations of how history can inform current affairs, we always offer our readers a fresh perspective on what’s gone before. With a remit that encompasses everything that’s ever happened, we rarely struggle to fill the magazine. In fact the hardest part of my job is deciding which fascinating subjects will have to wait for another day.
Reaching a core audience who are mature, highly affluent and educated
