with Robert Kilroy-Silk . Second of sixfilms about foreigners who have made Britain their home.
British Through and Through Eccentricity, it seems, is not just a British hallmark. On his travels around Britain Robert Kilroy-Silk meets seven foreigners who have become more British than the British.
There's the Japanese shepherdess in Devon, the Lebanese Dickens fanatic in Broadstairs, the Russian princess at the Ritz and the Yugoslavian hairdresser at Henley.
And there's also the Italian royalist who sums them all up when she says, 'I applied for British citizenship - it cost me a pound. It's the best pound I've ever spent.' Photography

Now, filmed over the last three years, Simon's Triumph marks the emergence of a very different character, who no longer looks back. 'I am no war hero,' he says. 'I'm just
