Huliganov’s Philadelphia, part 1 – Trouble Crossing


Original YT playout date: 8 November 2009
Duration: 18:03

Welcome to the third series of Huliganov’s North America. This deals with the difficulties of getting across the Atlantic when the first plane to Frankfurt takes off two hours late and the connecting flight has to delay so you can get on. The luggage came two days later. When we arrived in Philadelphia, it was raining the way it rains all the time in America whenever I go there but never seems to on your Hollywood films unless they’ve got George Clooney in, in which case it’s studio hands chucking it from the sides in buckets, and it’s really perfumed rosewater. Here’s where to come to see the real America. And we go to America’s first capital, to where American citizenship all began, to where a bunch of English people abroad decided that they wanted to be something else, and wanting to was, in the end, really all they needed. Now they really are something else, as you will see, as the series unfolds…
