A Brysonesque journey through European stereotypes with RTÉ’s high-profile European correspondent. An amusing, topical, witty and fascinating look at Europe and Europeans. Tony Connelly goes on a quest to discover the origins and veracity behind the stereotypes each European nation has inherited.

• In Austria, Connelly attends a ball in the Hofberg Palace, where he is struck by the terrible nostalgia for a lost empire.

• In France, the history of the baguette makes an appearance, alongside Connelly’s search for the ultimate in Rude Waiters.

• In Italy he attends a 100th birthday party to explore the stereotype of Mamma and ‘the Family’.

Where have our notions of stereotypical behaviour come from? And do they have any bearing on the modern-day European?
