BEST GRUMBLE That's Britain! (BBC [...].

BEST GRUMBLE That's Britain! (BBC One, Wednesday, 7.30pm) * IF there's one thing the British enjoy, it's a good moan. Whether it's the state of the nation, the weather or The X Factor results, we've got an opinion - usually a negative one - and we're not afraid to share it. But while some of these grumbles may just be a way of making conversation or getting a pet hate off our chest, some of these moans do have a point to them, which is where this show comes in.

Nick Knowles and Julia Bradbury are investigating those little niggles that make Britain less great - think of it as The One Show meets Watchdog with a dash of That's Life for older viewers. It's not going to be wall-to-wall whingeing about how things were better in the past though, as Nick and Julia will also be inviting their guests to look at what's good about modern Britain as well.

Meanwhile, roving reporter Ade Edmondson, will be going behind the scenes of some of the systems that keep the country working, which could at least give us a new-found sympathy for the hard-working individuals sorting our baggage at airports or keeping us in electricity.

In fact, we could even have to find something new to moan about.
