Britain Unzipped will lift the lid on what us Brits really think and get up to. It's the show that delivers an alternative social census of the UK and caters for the nation's number one obsession – themselves. Radio 1 DJ Greg James and comedian Russell Kane host proceedings in this studio based comedy entertainment show, which over six weeks will unfurl the results of our unique questionnaire. The show will involve celebrity guests, audience surprises and hidden camera stunts, along the way exploring how beliefs and behaviours differ across the nation.
Runtime: 60 minutes

In the show, presenters Greg and Russell try to find out what is weird and wonderful about the people of Britain. Over the course of six weeks, they asked a total of five-hundred questions to people, and put together the 'Britain Unzipped Report', made up of statistics taken from the overall answer to each question. Such questions include 'Have you ever woken up and had no idea where you were?' and 'would you watch a friends sex tape if it was leaked on the internet?'. They then ask these questions to a celebrity guest, and to special members of the audience, the 'Britain Unzipped Sample', which have been specifically chosen to be the most likely to give entertaining answers. James said of the series: “I'm pretty sure we live in a nation full of characters – this show will find out once and for all just how weird we actually are. It'll also make me feel better about how often my Internet history is cleared!” Kane commented: “I am absolutely thrilled to be involved in this project. Given that I don't even have a clue who I am, I'm going to enjoy picking apart who everyone else is.” BBC Three controller Zai Bennett says of the series: “Britain Unzipped will be a unique show examining the state of the nation that is the BBC Three audience. With Greg and Russell at the helm it promises to be an irreverent and hilarious look at exactly what our audience are up to and what they think of one another.” On 11 June 2012, less than a week after the first series ended, it was announced that Britain Unzipped had been recommissioned for a second series. On 6 August 2012, it was announced on the official Facebook of BBC Three that Britain Unzipped would be returning as Unzipped and not as Britain Unzipped, though a reason for this has not yet been given. The second series began on BBC Three on 3 October 2012.
