Seagulls Over Sue Ryder

Beauty of Britain, Series 1 Episode 1 of 6

30 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 05 October 2009

Comedy by Christopher Douglas and Nicola Sanderson. Beauty Olonga works as a carer for the Featherdown Agency and sees herself as an inspiration to other African girls hoping to achieve their goals in the land of semi-skimmed milk. We see Britain through her eyes - its overheated houses, its disappointing church services and its over-fondness for cauliflower cheese.

Beauty discovers the glories of Weston-super-Mare's charity shops and experiences the disappointment of her first British funeral.
