British as Folk

Comedians Darren Harriott, Fern Brady and Ivo Graham get stuck into the middle of the country, to discover if the Midlands is really as mundane as the stereotypes suggest. To test the theory, they disembark in Leicester, one of the most diverse communities in Great Britain. Beginning with a bit of history, the trio visit the original burial site of Richard III (now a car park), and while Ivo gets stuck into the science of the DNA discovery, Fern and Darren roll their sleeves up at the local fruit and veg market. The three reconnect on the Golden Mile to sample delicious local delicacies before ending their stay with a boozy curry in this city of vast culture.
