What makes the English English?

Is it their eccentricity, their passionate love (or, indeed, hatred) of Marmite – or is it something less easily defined?

Come and meet the archetypal Englishman – lover of labradors and Land Rovers yet holder of two passports – who applauds all things quintessentially English while also paying tribute to the history, culture and ideas adopted with such gusto that they have become part of the fabric of the country. Ben’s trademark warmth and wit will make this is a light-hearted yet touching tribute to all things English.
