On January 1 2013 Derry~Londonderry begins its year as the first UK City of Culture.

Here William Crawley visits the city and other places in Northern Ireland to reflect on identity in his homeland.

The recent protests following the decision to restrict the flying of the union flag at Belfast City Hall have made identity a talking point. As have the census results - they show 40% of people in Northern Ireland have a British only national identity, 25% an Irish only national identity and 21% a Northern Irish only national identity.

William meets men and women across Northern Ireland to consider whether there are changes in perceptions of identity.

Producer: Claire Burgoyne.
