Who is The Strongest Man In History?

Strongman Eddie Hall talks exclusively about his new series on HISTORY®

Can a group of modern macho men overcome historic strongman challenges both here and across the pond?

The Strongest Man In History, Sunday 10 November, 9pm, HISTORY® HD (CH 270). Also available for 30 days in Catch Up > Channels > HISTORY

Alan Partridge may not have wanted to watch “a giant Michael Bolton lookalike in a tight vest throwing an oven over bales of hay” but we do. You see, we love our strongmen. Who, though, is the strongest of the lot?

 

New to HISTORY®, seven-part series The Strongest Man In History attempts to answer that burning question. Famous strongman competitors Eddie Hall, Nick Best, Brian Shaw and Robert Oberst will travel from the US to the UK to investigate strongman legends and take on vein-popping challenges from yesteryear to prove exactly who is the hardest.


Episode 1 sees the team head to Moorhead, Minnesota, to find out if they’re as tough as the Viking warriors who once walked the land. Their main challenge? To see if they can lift a mast weighing a whopping 1,433 lbs. Rather them than us.

 

And don’t worry if you miss the first episode. With 30 days catch-up on HISTORY®  there’s plenty of time to watch these red-faced, cheek-puffing heroes go head to head with each other in the name of entertainment.

 

With its mix of fascinating historical insight and incredible feats of strength, The Strongest Man In History is a strongman show with a difference. Here, we chat with World’s Strongest Man 2017 and deadlift world record holder Eddie Hall of Great Britain to find out more…
