Philomena Cunk (from Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe) knows absolutely nothing about anything, but that won't stop her attempting to present a ground-breaking documentary about it.

In the first special, she looks at William Shakespeare. Philomena said: "A bit like the tooth fairy, nobody's actually seen Shakespeare, and nobody knows if he's real or just made up for kids. So I'll be talking to some expert people to try and find out more about him and his films."

In the second special, Philomena looks at Christmas. On her festive mission she aims to track down the true meaning of Christmas, and find out "exactly what it is he wants".

Throughout the series, Cunk On Britain, she examines the history of Great Britain and how we got to where we are today.

2022 series Cunk On Earth sees her telling the entire story of Human Civilisation from prehistoric times to the present day, covering all the main bits of History, Science, Culture and Religion.
