Audio slideshow: Englishman in New York

New York is home to some 120,000 English men and women - including photographer Jason Bell. Inspired by the sheer number of British-born people who live there, he tracked down some of better known faces, but also others who do their 'day jobs' in The Big Apple.

His photographic results - published in a new book 'An Englishman in New York' - are on display at the National Portrait Gallery in London. BBC Radio 4's magazine programme Broadcasting House travelled to the US - and caught up with Jason, and some of his subjects.
