About this programme

1/4. Comedian Rory McGrath and actor Will Mellor drive around the UK in a Morris Traveller, seeking out the weirdest, wildest and most wonderful games that the nation has to offer. They begin in King's Lynn, Norfolk, where they take part in Reliant Robin racing, before heading to Rutland to compete in nurdling, which involves tossing coins and dates back to the 17th century. In Lowestoft, Suffolk, they attend the World Thumb-Wrestling Championships, and in Haddenham, Cambridgeshire, they go up against the planet's best pea-shooters.
