David Holmes reviews week-by-week the moves made by the politicians and examines the part played by government in the lives of us all.
The Magic is Here and Now ...is the theme of John Braine's contribution to this series of highly personal films.
Best known for his first novel Room at the Top, written when he was an angry young radical, Braine has come to accept England for what it is, and longs passionately to preserve what he once wanted to reform.
"I believe if our present system of society works, we should leave it alone..." he says. "Governments are not here to teach us how to live, but to preserve the framework in which we can lead our own lives and dream our own dreams."
