On the first of November, the award-winning American public television broadcaster, PBS, began airing in Britain with its new tv channel, PBS UK. In the USA, PBS is watched by 233 million Americans a year.
Dates in the UK (and most of the world) are formatted differently than the USA. Instead of Month-Day-Year, the day is first, Day-Month-Year and said for example "the 7th of November" (07-11-2011). Pay attention on important forms and food expirations!
