The Little Black Shorts

Beauty of Britain, Series 2 Episode 3 of 6

No professional care-worker can afford to miss Beauty Olonga's survival guide to Britain - its overheated houses, its disappointing church services and its world-class charity shops. Series 2 of this comedy follows Beauty's continuing adventures as the Featherdown Agency send her to provide care for the elderly.

Beauty sees herself as an inspiration to other African girls hoping to live the dream in Britain. Beauty sees Britain at its best, its worst and also sometimes without its clothes on running the wrong way down the M6 with a toy dog shouting 'Come on!'
