For a special 45-minute live show, Americana comes from Ground Zero, in downtown New York, where Jonny Dymond will talk with Americans about how their country - and mindset - has changed in the decade since 9/11. Up for discussion - the US sense of security, the experiences of three Muslims living in New York, and the story of an Iraq-vet-turned-chronicler of America's contemporary wars.
