The Ukes In America

(2013, 57min, PAL & NTSC).    Documentary on the first coast-to-coast US tour of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.

'It is a very British trait to perform something exceptionally silly exceptionally well. Now the UK uke superstars are embarking on a tour of the US, home of the instrument. Like the band itself, it sounds like a horrendous idea but is hugely entertaining to watch. America: lock up your grannies.'  Radio Times.

The Ukes In America's broadcast debut is on Sky Arts 1, May 23 at 7.15pm.   We're now in discussion with other broadcasters around the world and will update on progress as deals and transmission dates are confirmed.

The double-disc DVD features more than an hour of Extras and subtitles in 7 languages - buy it here.


In October 2012 and April 2013, Litmus Films followed The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain on its first coast-to-coast tour of the USA.

This film reveals what happened when the UOGB discovered the USA, and the USA discovered the UOGB.

To mark its launch, anyone ordering this DVD from the Litmus website will receive a specially-created The Ukes In America button badge FREE.
