2 x 60’
Dirty, filthy secrets about the way modern Brits live are graphically revealed by the men and women who clean up after us. Britain is sadly, a filthy country… the dustbin of Europe. Thankfully, an unsung army of 400,000 cleaners toil day and night to stop us drowning in our own filth.
Dirty Britain follows some of these dedicated men and women, from a toilet inspector on a mission to improve our public loos, to a forensic scientist revealing the disgusting truth lurking on our cash machines. We also discover horrors from rat infestations to landfills fit to bursting, overflowing portaloos and decomposing properties, bedraggled pooches at the parlour and the filthy reality of a day at the races…
