Series 1, Episode 1 - Other People
This first episode examines the root cause of most Very British Problems: other people.
From having no idea what to say or do as an acceptable greeting, to spending 20 minutes saying goodbye to each other, the British have an inherent inability to talk to or interact like ordinary humans.
What are the unwritten rules of small talk? How many times is it acceptable to ask someone to repeat themselves before you just have to nod and hope for the best?
What does James Corden really mean when he offers to help wash up? What caused Jonathan Ross to accidentally start speaking in an American accent? What does Ruth Jones say as a way of telling people she wants them to go home? And why does Johnny Vegas have a pathological fear of shaking hands?
