British consumer is not an agreeable experience, says Dylan Winter as he goes undercover to investigate how the British treat their customers in this new four-part series.
Five organisations agreed to the BBC secretly filming their staff in action, although they didn't know when the filming would take place. Afterwards staff and management commented on the results and these sessions are included in the programme.
Producer David Dawson-Pick says: "One thing our filming seems to have proved is that people in Britain are intrinsically nice. In most cases they try hard to help, but they are poorly managed and often understaffed."
In Counter Spy, the first programme, Winter finds out whether the staff of Burger King and Ansells pubs have the personal touch.

Private Tosh Hearne:
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
