How do we become who we are? How does family background alter one's sense of self?

"I used to think that my heritage was in India but when I go back to India now, it's changed so much that I almost feel like a British Sikh with an Indian heritage."

London based, DJ Bobby Friction travels to Canada to find out what his life might have been like if his family had moved from India to Canada and not the UK.

After spending a day with his trucker cousin, he questions his own identity. Is it easier being Asian in Canada or in Europe?

How does reconnecting with the past - and examining one's family more closely - inform us about who we are and where we come from?

First broadcast on 2 July, 2010.
