In this episode of This Week in Germany Extra, we speak to the British Ambassador to Germany, Sir Simon McDonald.

We tackle questions spanning the breadth and depth of the work of an embassy and an ambassador, including:

What does an ambassador do all day? Is it all posh parties and luxurious living?

How does an embassy work to help the citizens of its home country?

What things can an embassy not help you with?
