My Country: A Work in Progress

Duration: 54 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Two HDLatest broadcast: on BBC Two England

Britannia calls a meeting to listen to her people. Caledonia, Cymru, East Midlands, North East, Northern Ireland and the South West bring the voices of their regions. The debate is passionate, the darts are sharp, stereotypes nailed and opinions divided. Can there ever be a United Kingdom?

In the days following the Brexit vote, a team from the National Theatre of Great Britain spoke to people nationwide, aged 9 to 97, to hear their views on the country we call home. In a series of deeply personal interviews, they heard opinions that were honest, emotional, funny and sometimes extreme.

These real testimonials are interwoven with speeches from party leaders in this new programme by poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy and Rufus Norris. Show less
