The TES Podcast - World War I special

7th November 2013 at 15:49

In this week's podcast we hear from John Blake who penned this week's TES cover story on how the First World War is no longer taught as an historical event, but rather a moral tale. We speak to Dr Catriona Pennell from the University of Exeter who is conducting a nationwide survey of how the war is taught in secondary schools. And, finally, we caught up with headmaster Dr Anthony Seldon who has written a new book on the loss suffered by public school boys in the Great War.
