I would be grateful if someone could explain what the programme contains. It's just that I want to pass it onto my Polish friends, but if its negative and biased, that would not give a fair overall picture of real life here.

Have they chosen a cross-section of polish people to interview? I was also wondering is it all based in London, or do they choose other cities.

A little explanation would be great, and what time does it appear on TVP1 in Poland?

It started last night and will be on every Thursday at 9.10pm

Have they chosen a cross-section of polish people to interview?

It's not a documentary, but a drama or "serial" about Poles living in London.
I only caught a little bit of the first one last night, so can't really tell you about the content.
I did notice that there were a few scenes with English dialogue/characters and Polish subtitles.

Czy lubisz seriale tv Londyńczycy i dlaczego?
Kto jest twój ulubiona charakter i dlacezego?

If you like you can correct my errors above also, thanks.

I think that this program is for entertainment and not to be taken seriously, it is for fun with a grain of truth.
