Four Flat Whites in Italy is the story of retired librarians, Adrian and Alison. They have scrimped and saved for the holiday of a lifetime with another couple they’ve known for years. Shortly before leaving, one of their friends breaks his ankle, and the couple are unable to join them. Stepping into the breach are two new neighbours – brash Harry, a retired plumber, and his sexy younger wife, Judy, who insist on flying business class. What follows is an hilarious clash of budgets, interests, politics, culture, sex, religion, sport and coffee! Laugh along with the Flat Four’s poignantly funny adventures as they tour Venice, Rome and Tuscany.
Sunday afternoons and two weeknights TBC.
