The Pride of Britain awards are given to heroes who have shown extraordinary feats of courage or perserverance.
There are those people who want us to believe that today’s Britain is ruined, downtrodden, thuggish and selfish. A country made ugly by violence, drunkenness and greed.
Before you believe them, you should watch Pride of Britain.
Not just for its towering figure – but for the everyday heroes – the crime-fighting postman and the teenage cancer victim who wanted to swim a mile for his dead friend.
Watch winner after winner, and ask yourself, is Britain really broken?
