Ahem. Marcus Brigstocke coughs politely, dons a crumpled linen suit and fibs for Britain as he tries his hand at becoming a diplomat. On the way, he'll look at the history and origins of diplomacy, the training required and the fact that approximately 60% of the modern British diplomat's work is spent apologising for Jeremy Clarkson.

Helping him to foster mutually beneficial relationships will be Margaret Cabourn-Smith, William Andrews and Colin Hoult.

Written by Marcus Brigstocke, Jeremy Salsby, Toby Davies, Nick Doody, Steve Punt and Dan Tetsell
