Rory and Paddy's Great British Adventure at Five TV
Rory and Paddy’s Great British Adventure, produced by IWC Media, will see them travel the length and breadth of the UK in a small camper van, taking part in a whole host of unusual but quintessentially British events, including: Cheese Rolling in Gloucestershire; Pig Racing in Dorset; the famous Bird Men of Bognor competition and the cheerfully violent sport of shin kicking, centrepiece of the Cotswold Olympics.
