John Sergeant presents a 3-part series 'On the Tourist Trail' starting tomorrow (10th November 2009) on ITV1. John will join groups of foreign tourists seeing Britain for the first time - Japanese in the Lake District, Javanese in Wales, Americans in Surrey and Germans on the Isle of Mann and in the Cotswold Village where he grew up.
Unlike his former colleagues, David Dimbleby and Andrew Marr who have also recently presented programmes celebrating our beautiful country, this programme aims to be more lighthearted and with a human touch. He'll be ready with answers for tourists' questions - so why do we say it's raining cats and dogs!
Having been a tour guide in his 20s whilst studying at Oxford, John will impart his knowledge to the tourists in his care, but more interestingly, will find out what they think of us!
On the Tourist Trail (ITV1) starts tomorrow (10th November 2009) at 8pm
