I'm the Editor of CNET UK and I've been going to CES for over a decade now. But there's one country's tech I almost never see reported on at the show -- my own. I've always wondered why that is.

Brits have been involved in so many important tech inventions over the years, from television to the World Wide Web -- are our best discoveries behind us, or do we still have something left to give?

On Tuesday at 2 p.m. Pacific Time (10 p.m. U.K. time) I'll be trying to find the answer to that question and others by talking to three people at the coalface of the U.K. tech industry, to find out what they're up to. From the gadget side, I'll have Colin Crawford of Pure, a company dedicated to streaming audio and radio products, which is launching a wireless speaker in the U.S. to rival Sonos.

Representing British inventors will be Ian Drew from ARM, probably the U.K.'s biggest tech success story. ARM's technology dominates the mobile industry, featuring in most smartphone and tablet chips.

Finally, as a young successful company that won a place at the 2012 CES in a competition, Blippar -- a maker of an augmented reality platform for mobile devices -- has a thing or two to say about what it's like to start and run a company from the U.K. Ambarish Mitra, founder and CEO, will be on stage to tell us about that.

We'll discuss what each of these companies is launching at the show and get into subjects such as what it's like to run companies in these fields from Britain -- the advantages and disadvantages. We'll chat about the tech scene in the U.K., whether it's thriving or shrinking and how it compares to the big daddy, Silicon Valley.

So please do join us at 2 p.m. PT on Tuesday -- it'll be live-streamed at ces.cnet.com/ces-videos/. Toodle-pip for now.
