Sir Patrick Stewart has appeared on American radio show How To Do Everything to explain how to moo like an English cow to a listener.

The actor, who lives in Little Tew, near Chipping Norton, told hosts Mike Danforth and Ian Chillag: “In England we are dominated by social status and location.

“A cow in the field next to my house in West Oxfordshire would moo in one kind of way, and a cow in a field in the town I grew up in in the North of England would moo in another kind of way.

“If I walked down my lane and there were all these cows and I say, ‘Hi, good morning, cows, they would moo at me like this: ‘Mooooooouhh.’ “That’s a very conservative moo.”
