With a title like this you might immediately think that this going to be some pointless competition with celebrities thrown in – and you would be right.

While we do have Dr. Hannah Fry and Ant Anstead to give some sensible debate from this show that is coming live from London’s Science Museum, but it’s mostly a collection of celebrities arguing about which British invention was the most important.

Among the famous faces appearing at David Harewood, Giles Coren, Sir Trevor McDonald, Nick Knowles, Angela Rippon, Len Goodman and Angela Scanlon.

Britain’s Greatest Invention is on BBC Two at 20.30.
