Simon SchamaDavid CameronBroadcastingTV historian Simon Schama was yesterday appointed by the coalition government as an advisor on education.
Education secretary Michael Gove announced that Schama, the renowned academic who presents the BBC series A History of Britain, will advise ministers on teaching.
Gove said that the move will ensure no pupil leaves school without learning "narrative British history".
Schama, a professor at Columbia, said that he hopes to bring "excitement and joy" to the education curriculum.
"A return to coherent, gripping history is not a step backwards to dry-as-dust instruction," he said.
"It represents a moment of cultural and educational rediscovery."
In a recent interview with David Cameron, professor Schama urged the prime minister to make improvements to the teaching of history in schools.
