In Search Of Mr Average (2007)
According to statistics, the average Briton drinks
1,000 cups of tea a year, goes to the toilet six times a day, believes
in God, hates brussel sprouts, is caught on camera 300 times a day, has
14 friends, spends 19 minutes preparing their dinner, and has sex eight
times a month. But who exactly this average person? What do they look
like? Where do they live?
This quirky and entertaining film follows director
Tim Wardle's search for Britain's Most Average Person - the ordinary
everyman or woman who epitomises the nation's habits, opinions and
behaviour. Using a combination of humorous, telling and eye-opening
stats, Tim journeys the length and breadth of the UK, gradually
narrowing down his search for Britain's ultimate Mr or Ms Average until
there is only one person left.
Can Tim find this definitive J Bloggs? And if so,
what can he or she tell us about state of contemporary Britain? This
compelling and humorous documentary follows Tim's extraordinary journey
into the rarely seen world of the incredibly average.
