There are over 39,000 malls in North America, where Main Street appears to be a thing of the past. Russell Davies travels to the mega-malls of Edmonton, Minneapolis and California to investigate these controversial enablers of - or impediments to - community. Is there a line to be drawn from the Greek agora and the Italian piazza to the frequently kitsch arcades of the modern mall? And is there something frightening about a place that promises everything?
The first in a new series of four programmes featuring music with Celtic connections.
