MAKE ME A GERMAN (BBC2)
Or Make Us German, because it's the Rowlatt family who are after Germanisation. Justin, Bee and their two youngest are leaving north London to live in a flat in Nuremberg for a while, in order to understand what it means to be German, particularly when it comes to being successful.

Also not so good news, surprisingly. Booooo! Women are encouraged – by kindergarten timetables, by society, by language even (the German phrase for working women translates as raven mothers, because they abandon their children) – to stay at home to cook and clean, for more than four hours a day! The hausfrau is alive and well. And Bee's not happy about it. Go girl ... erm, go woman?
