Britain in Bed is the ultimate history of sex, a documentary which reveals how our attitudes, knowledge and experience has changed and grown over the last 50 years. This entertaining rundown of the sexiest stories, headline-making scandals and key events shows how the nation's sexual behaviour has grown in confidence over the years.

Featuring revealing archive and frank celebrity interviews, it brings you the inside track on sex in Britain - how sex has moved from the clandestine to the mainstream and become accepted, celebrated, explored and shared, from the birth of the Pill to the rise of sex toys, from celebrity sex tapes to the explosion in internet porn.

Presented by Jessica Jane Clement, Britain in Bed is an explicit history and celebration of sex in Britain - from our tentative first sexual steps in the the Swinging Sixties and climaxing with the latest sex stories for 2012.
