British TV chef Jamie Oliver is appalled by the food being served in British public schools. He learns that not only do the children prefer to eat junk food, but they have very little knowledge of vegetables and fruits and are very afraid of trying anything remotely new. This series shows all the problems and dilemmas he faces and overcomes whilst admirably attempting to make a healthier nation.
This show has irritating hosts (especially Justine Shapiro) who get in the way rather than letting a country reveal itself. You don't need to over talk, carry on, shriek at the camera, have shots of you running along in a swimsuit...
It doesn't stand out in any way, or do anything better or different to the hundreds of travel shows out there. The editing is pretty poor at time, or the show focuses on an uninteresting person in the country for too long , which makes it boring to watch.
I think travel shows may be better when they predominantly use voiceovers as it takes a camera hog out of the way so you can see a country in all its beauty, its faults etc.
