Series 1, Episode 1
Hapless radio talk-show host Gary Bellamy steps onto the small screen, into his Triumph Stag "personality vehicle" and travels the length and breadth of the land meeting the people of Britain and trying to find out what makes them tick.
In this first episode, Gary meets some of the regular callers to his award-winning radio show, like 28 stone Graham Downes, Jamaican entrepreneur Early D, reformed criminal Tony Beckton, and small minded builder Martin Hole.
He also gets to meet the aristocratic Combe sisters who have divided their stately home along political lines, and self-appointed Muslim community leader Mister Khan.
