IF THE NATIONALISTIC tubthumping surrounding a sports event happening in Australia right now has you running to Netflix or a book, perhaps Philomena Cunk will be of interest.

Cunk On Britain is a new five part BBC series, in which the insightful Philomena Cunk (not her real name) provides a unique interpretation of British history. 

Watch as Ms Cunk asks a bewildered academic whether King Arthur 'camelot' and learn that The Black Death was “not a metaphorical plague like a metaphorical plague, but an actual plague, made of plague”.

Because this is worth watching it won't be appearing on New Zealand television anytime soon...
