Simon Pegg talks to Matthew Sweet about his latest comedy, A Fantastic Fear of Everything. Producer Stephen Woolley and Catherine Bray of FilmFour join them to celebrate British humour in film - how much does what makes us laugh define who we are as a nation? And why do American audiences still look to British performers to provide them with some element they can't quite manage to grow at home?

From Chaplin to Carry On, from Monty Phython to Sacha Baron Cohen - we look at the fine comic tradition that Simon Pegg embodies.

Producer: David Braithwaite.
