Hello,
At 00:30, 'Britain has it all'. Why not 'Britain has them all'?

Hi Aung Thet Naing,
to have it all is a common informal expression. "Britain has it all" means that Britain has everything one could want when it comes to sport.
It doesn't refer so much to all the sporting venues he mentions just before - it refers to everything in general one could want that is related to sport.

hi i can't see video's in here and overcooked

Hi rihanna,
I'm sorry to hear you're having problems watching the video.  Unfortunately, users in Iran do have trouble watching some of our videos. 
We are trying to find a solution to this.  If you look at some of the more recent Word on the Street videos  – like Christmas Scene 1 – you'll see a link that says 'Can't see video? Click here!' just under the main video.  Please tell me if you can see that video.
All of our recent videos, as well as some of our older videos are already available through this method, and we will be moving more videos to this system when we can.
I h
ope that helps you.
Best wishes,

Simply Amazing !
I haven't got anything to say , the video has said all about it.
well...I'm from Argentina and I love the football , and I like the English Premier League  , I always see all matches but I prefer see the matches of Liverpool  , it is my favorite English team but it isn't the most club of football to me because I'm fan of the Pope's team ( San Lorenzo ).

Hi Francuervo
If you like the Premier League, you should have a look at Premier Skills English. There are lots of football themed resources. 
Thanks

Hello! I'd like to know what level do we need for these podcasts.

Hello,
As it says on the main Britain is Great page, 'the videos are lively and fast-moving - best if you're already confident with your English.'
I think CEF B2 would be a good level to understand a lot of the video, if not all. CEF B1 would get a lot out of them, but find some of the dialogue tough.
Best wishes,
