A new programme entitled Broadband Britain will take viewers on a tour of the country, examining the state of the UK's broadband network.

Beginning today on the radio, TV and online, the show kicks off on the Isle of Skye, where users struggle to obtain broadband connectivity.

Commenting on his blog, technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones notes that the programme will then visit Dundee, where residents are being offered broadband through the sewers.

The team will also visit Milton Keynes, where residents are using WiMax services to gain access to high-speed wireless internet.

"We will also be trying wherever possible - and this is what is making me just a tad nervous - to use broadband to send all our video and audio back and to do our live broadcasts," he explains.

Mr Cellan-Jones has held the position of the BBC's technology correspondent since the beginning of 2007 and has worked for the corporation since 1981. He is a regular contributor to technology blog.
