Booze Britain was a fly-on-the-wall documentary television series produced by Granada[1] that aired on British satellite TV channel Bravo[1] in half-hour episodes which documented the binge drinking culture of various towns and cities in the United Kingdom, typically following the main star of the show, G 'the tank' Hutt.[2] The series followed a group of friends as they indulge in an evening drinking heavily in various establishments usually in their own town or city, police officers fining and arresting people for various alcohol-related incidents and also paramedics who are called out to handle the consequences of drunkenness. The narration by Mark Womack provided alcohol-related statistics and comments on medical issues raised by the scenes depicted.

In its second series, subtitled Binge Nation, they went to numerous places in the country.[2]
