Humanity's History certainly knows some great figures- yet not all of those are well known to us. This show aims at introducing and shedding light upon the figures who, without a doubt, were important but are overlooked by "PopHistory".

Season 1 deals with August von Gneisenau, an officer who was one of the main forces of resistance against Napoleon in the Kingdom of Prussia and was very heavily involved in the Army Reforms starting in 1806.

Season 2 deals with Joseph P. Kennedy Sr., the founder of America's most popular and influential political dynasty- we will find out about his early life, his business career, his diplomatic posting in London and will see how his world slowly crumbles as the family is struck by one disaster after another.

Season 3 will deal with Salvador Allende, President of Chile from 1970-73, who by democratic means constructed a socialist government and was deposed of by the Chilean Army around soon-to-be dictator Augusto Pinochet. We will take a look at his entrance into politics and his stunning career in one of the most vibrant democracies to have ever existed.

Irregularly, I will talk about forgotten events in "The Forgotten Episodes" (TFE). The first one, for example, is about the Cretan War.
