Great British Bake Off hits the US

Britain's latest reality television export, making its debut this week, is The Great British Bake Off, reborn as The American Baking Competition, on the CBS network.

The BBC's New York correspondent Matt Wells reports.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Tuesday 4 June 2013.
