In celebration of St. George's Day, this last episode in the present series focuses on the English - their culture, history, and how they are perceived internationally.
Join Ricky Gervais, Steve Merchant, and Karl Pilkington as they take tea, maintain a stiff upper lip and generally comport themselves as fine examples of the Bulldog Breed.
In this episode: Karl harks back to halcyon days; Ritzy crackers; the archetypal Englishman; weddings; Karl on cafe culture; help the aged; Ricky's royal etiquette; dung beetles and dead badgers; fair play and the crossbow; dragon slaying and tongue-grabbing; Steve's spectacles; and Ricky reads a Brooke.

"Ricky Gervais Guide to... THE ENGLISH"
More of the same from Ricky, Steve and Karl. Karl has developed a more urbane accent.
In the free short version, Ricky stated that it was "a quid" whereas actually it is ?1.98. I suspect that at some time in the future they will all be bundled into a series for a discount. So only for the must-listen-now fans......
Money aside, Ricky's humour is always innovative, clever and funny - and never repeats itself. Nice to have a programme these days that is aimed at the English - and in particular those in Reading!
