Whose Island Story

12:14, Wed 16 Mar 2011

This is a podcast responding to recent government proposals that the British school history curriculum be redesigned to better fit the idea of 'our island story'. The podcast participants, in discussing this idea, take a critical stance and seek to probematise the concept of a single, territorially bounded, British historical narrative.
