Morgan Spurlock's New Britannia

Sky Atlantic comedy. 10 episodes (1 series) in 2012. Stars Morgan Spurlock.

Series 1, Episode 1

American comic Morgan Spurlock delves into traditionalist Britain. Here, he is joined by Shappi Khorsandi, Andrew Maxwell and Ruby Wax to discuss foreigners.

Further details

The American comedian and filmmaker's chat-show/on-the-road series begins with a look at foreigners living in Britain and how some of our true national cornerstones, such as The Royal Family, Marks and Spencer and even Boris Johnson, may not be as British as we think.

Comedians Shappi Khorsandi, Andrew Maxwell and candid American comic Ruby Wax join Morgan Spurlock for a humorous discussion on how foreign culture thrives on our shores, looking at how Brits react to immigrants on a social and professional basis and talking about their own rib-tickling experiences.

Spurlock also takes to the streets to gauge the thoughts of the general public, guides a group of youngsters on a tongue-in-cheek open-top bus tour and asks members of the studio audience to prove whether they really know enough about their own country.
