The series which takes a look at a European city through the eyes of a British resident. This week Neil Hardwick takes presenter David Lodge on a tour of Helsinki - a city of silence, alcoholic excess, sexual liberation, emotional self-sufficiency and an awful lot of smoked fish. Hardly the most obvious choice of a city to spend the rest of your life in - but Neil found fame and fortune in a country eager for new ideas and inspiration. He's widely credited with teaching the Finns to laugh at themselves - and translating the humour of Monty Python into Finnish. Producer Sara Jane Hall Rpt
