Citizen Smith - Mavericks


Writer Michael Smith takes on the guise of a contemporary Citizen Smith, scouring the country in search of a modern day definition of nationality. He celebrates the quintessentially English mavericks who feel at liberty to buck the system by doing it themselves and doing it their way. Richard Wilson, the Rubbish Men, Colin Pillinger and his Beagle mission to Mars are all considered worthy, as Smith flies the flag for the only country in the world that uses the word eccentric as a compliment.
