The picture used on the screen at 36 minutes 21 seconds to show the Crimean War is actually Lady Elizabeth Butler’s painting titled ‘Scotland Forever’ which is of the charge of the Scot’s Greys at Waterloo in 1815 and nothing to do with the Crimean War.

I totally agree with Tony Robinson’s comments about Michael Gove and teachers though.
