Mr Robinson versus Mr Gove

Mr Robinson versus Mr Gove

A row has erupted between Sir Tony Robinson and Michael Gove after the education secretary claimed "left-wing academics" were using Blackadder "to feed myths" about World War One.  Sir Tony, who played Baldrick in the BBC series, said Mr Gove was essentially "slagging off teachers".  But Mr Gove said Sir Tony - a left wing activist - was "wrong" and he had not been attacking teachers, just "myths".  The row comes ahead of centenary commemorations for the outbreak of WW1.
