The Timeblazers explore some of history's biggest goof-ups. First to the days of Christopher Columbus, who mistakenly named Native Americans "Indians"; then they meet Leif Erikson, who is now renowned as the first European to set foot on the shores of North America. Then to 1812, when Napoleon Bonaparte was defeated by the Russians because they used the "scorched earth" tactic. Then they head to 1173 where, in Italy, an architect built the famous Tower of Pisa on a soft foundation, causing it to lean.
