Modern Britain can be a confusing place if you're old. What's grime music? What's a superfood and does it always have to taste awful? Why is it that if you say something's 'b****cks' then that's bad, but if you say it's 'the b****cks' then that's good? What's the difference between Grindr and Tinder? And should you be doing either of them?

Instead of shying away from these significant, hard-to-answer questions, Barry Humphries and a team of senior investigative reporters face them head-on, providing an outsider's perspective on life in 2016 through a series of reports, hidden camera experiments and comedy sketches.
