A show on regional accents of England, Scotland, and Wales. If possible also how Old English, ancient Welch, Cornish, and any others sound.

Seconded.As an aside, we frequently vacation on an island 25 miles off the coast of North Carolina, called Ocracoke. The village has been inhabited since the early 18th century.Linguists have often been to the island because they say the locals accent is very close to a mid 17th century, east Anglian accent. It's real easy to spot the locals due to their accent.There is a British cemetery on the island, with Royal Navy sailors buried there, because the RN guarded that part of the NC coast in WWII, and some RN sailors were killed by Germans nearby.
