If you are watching TV and do not understand UK English, place your questions here.

I'm watching a UK TV series called IT Crowd, and it's easier to listen than American sitcom :D. I don't even need subtitle.
But the British accent in some region is really difficult to listen. I watch some sport news and tried so hard, but still couldn't understand what they said, especially old mans

I´ve been listening the BBC radion on iTunes. At first It was not undestantable, but I started listening almost every night. Now I think I´m getting used to that accent, but when they give the weather time, I´m completed lost. I still don´t get it.

I can say the hardest thing is the use of different vocabulary, but even I myself prefer the sound of British English :)
