    SHOW IDEA: "Our Man in Covid stricken UK" James, you said it's the hardest show to make under covid restrictions, so why not embrace that idea? You can meet people in UK, and move about somewhat, and much like travel shows where you highlight differences, you can sort of show how your home nation is like a foreign country. Maybe it won't be that interesting for Britons, but the rest of the English speaking world will really be interested.
