Comedian and writer Alexei Sayle, who has made a habit of badmouthing his fellow Scousers, comes home to confront his – and his city’s – demons and discovers there is nowhere else in Britain like it. Each programme uncovers a different aspect of the Scouse spirit and finds drama, humour, tragedy and a whole host of larger-than-life characters in the process.
Sayle’s interviews produce more laughs than many a sitcom.
A humorous, genuine and intelligent programme
A thoughtful and clear-eyed documentary
