The film-maker talks to the comic, best known as Philomena Cunk, about the end of the empire and the ‘rigid’ age of self-expression

As a comedian best known for playing mockumentary film-maker Philomena Cunk, Morgan has mastered the art of knowing absolutely nothing. Yet here they are, good pals, linked via Zoom to discuss Curtis’s new series of films, Can’t Get You Out of My Head: An Emotional History of the Modern World.
