    i am a big fan of fox history.but some time ago we changed our city. i was not able to see this channel for about 2 years. but now after two years, it has totally changed. i want to say that it is now more of traveling than history. we do not want to see how to make food or who is traveling where etc. that is also ok but it should be 80% history please, we want more of education. it is not enough.
