Episode 8 of 8

Duration: 30 minutes

Comedy. Award-winning radio phone-in host Gary Bellamy tries to pin down exactly what it means to be British.

As Gary revisits many of the people who have guided him on his tour around Bellamy's Britain he sums up what he has learnt in the making of this ground-breaking series.

Controversial radio phone-in host Steve Goodall still maintains that the ordinary British people have no voice, builder Martin Hole thinks nothing's been right since the 70s, reformed criminal Tony Beckton signs copies of his autobiography Beyond Reason, and the aristocratic Combe sisters come together over a shared love of music.

Gary also learns more about the 'Garden' cult and his new-found druid friends invite him to their fireside for an initiation ceremony involving mushroom tea and loud music.

To round off the series Geoffrey Allerton reads a moving poem about England.
