Britain is getting greater. In the last twenty-five years we have almost doubled in size, making us the most magnificently large nation in Europe. But is that such a big deal? Over the next few weeks, we’ll be getting up close and personal with some of Britain’s biggest and finest. We’ll follow the up and downs, the laughs, and the loves. So maybe now you can have your cake and eat it!
