Witty inventive humour

I love this series where Mark Steel manages to encapsulate the soul of Britain with an earthy and erudite humour that’s all his own. There’s a real art in exposing the foibles of a place before and with its inhabitants in a way that endears. Thoroughly recommend the series for anyone wanting cheering up though there are some extremely penetrating insights into the way our towns are being ruined and made more soulless by large corporations and vision less planners

Great fun, as always with Mark Steel

Mark Steel always does a great job in these series, a combination of mickey taking, appreciation for history and healthy amounts of tongue in cheek. Highly recommended if you dont take yourself too seriously :)
