Award-winning comedian and history fanatic AL MURRAY finds out what lies behind England’s greatest feuds with its closest neighbours: Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Germany and France.

Each episode will see Al partner with a local comedian and proud patriot (ANTOINE DE CAUNES in France, HENNING WEHN in Germany, FRED MACAULEY in Scotland, ELIS JAMES in Wales and ANDREW MAXWELL in Ireland) to explore stories of historic battles, massacres, riots and revolutions that have set the tone for our modern relationships with our closest neighbours.

It’s the perfect opportunity to shake hands and make friends…right?
