They are stereotyped and caricatured in the press and have been the subject of intense academic study. In this episode, Michaela speaks with Professor Karen O’Reilly, author of The British the Costa del Sol (Routledge, 2000) and Rebekah Miller, a PhD student at the University of Edinburgh, about the lives of these Britons beyond the headlines.
