The City

Listen in pop-out player

These days we humans have become an urban-dwelling species. So how has the city changed us? What are the pros and cons of life in a modern metropolis? From the experience of a single individual we'll zoom out, to view neighbourhoods and communities and to the city as a whole - a place that we have shaped and which, in turn, shapes us.
