Eddie Pepitone on British love of American culture

American comic Eddie Pepitone discussed British interest in his homeland on the BBC's This Week programme - and an apparent obsession with US news, music and movies.

He said it was an "extension of American militarism", as he spoke of his own admiration for the UK's Monty Python and Douglas Adams.
