    Over the course of the series, David eats his lunchtime sandwiches with children in a primary school and later goes to a street market to see manners - good and bad - in action. He explores where our manners come from with Professor Steven Pinker from Harvard University and the author Henry Hitchings. What do we mean by 'civility' and 'good manners' in public places? Why are people still pinching vicars' bottoms, and what can the state do to improve standards of public behaviour? And, David asks, how is the digital age changing our sense of public space?

    No one plays a lovable jerk like Jeff Daniels — but it's hard to love the jerk that he is in his latest role, as a pedophile in Broadway's Blackbird. Plus, we hear from David Foster Wallace's biographer D. T. Max about why Infinite Jest is still so important, 20 years after it first came out. And the punk-rock songwriter Shilpa Ray draws on her classical Indian music training in a live performance.

The warmth and enthusiasm that have made him a broadcasting legend are instantly apparent here as he recounts this magical journey.

    There has been an underlying darkness controlling humanity since time began. Often described as the "missing piece in the puzzle" by David Icke, or the "invisible darkness" by Ellis Taylor, the reptilians are shadow beings in the dark, waging war upon humans from the space between dimensions. One of the most taboo subjects in the media world is the existence of the reptilians. Researchers now reveal the presence of a supreme and nefarious inter-dimensional intelligence that has been manipulating mankind for centuries.
