Documentary presented by Keith Allen about James Harries, the precocious and eccentric child prodigy who was a fixture on television chat shows in the 1980s, discussing his wide-ranging knowledge of antiques and his desire to become Prime Minister. After tracking down the Harries family in the present-day, on a run-down Cardiff housing estate, Allen discovers the bizarre reality behind their facade of intellectual superiority. All of the family possess fake PhDs in Metaphysics, while the family itself comprises of a convicted arsonist, a former Bunny girl, and a part-time private detective. James himself has had a sex-change to become Lauren, and most disturbingly, the Harries still believe their own mythology, that they are morally and intellectually superior to the rest of society.
